Resources

At Barry Robinson Center we work every day to lock down insightful details that can improve treatment on many levels, from staff training at every level [even kitchen and housekeeping], to specific training/learning for our child and adolescent residents so they can better envision who they wish to become.

It’s our strong opinion that all of us must live on a growing curve, a learning curve, to constantly review and improve both target recognition – our inarguable emotional and self-management objectives, as well as our biological needs from nutritional, to stress-management, to exercise. Practice makes more perfect.

We’re proud of our working relationship, sponsorship, and support for Dr. Parker and CoreBrain Journal, our partners on the same larger mission: to share expert insights from global mind-science thought leaders for both professionals and public in Anytown. With CoreBrain Journal interviews we can all tap into and share deep insights that can make a difference in all of our lives on many levels. We encourage the evolution of insightful conversations at every level.
