A long-time practitioner of a Positive Peer Culture (PPC) system in its treatment program, Havenwood Academy announces it introduced PPC among its administrative team over the last year. Led by Program Director Oscar Fakahua, the administrative team meets regularly to participate in PPC groups where each member is encouraged to address any company concerns following the same format and vocabulary that teens in their treatment program use. The practice has brought an understanding of Positive Peer Culture to each member of their organization including Accounting, Insurance Utilization and Human Resources.
“Positive Peer Culture has benefited Havenwood’s administration team because it allows us to communicate directly with one another" said Oscar Fakahua, Program Director. He went on to say, "we work in an environment where it is easy to be passive aggressive and Positive Peer Culture allows us to discuss sensitive issues with care and concern. This has in turn benefited our program because everybody, from the top down, understands the PPC language. The administration team understands the methods being used by Program and Therapy, which gives us great unity.”
