Our Model:  RDI®

Relationship Development Intervention

WHAT IS DYNAMIC THINKING?

Dynamic thinking begins with connection.  We grow and develop through our relationships with others.  When we feel safe and connected we form trusted bonds with our caregivers.  It is through that trusted relationship where we feel safe enough to explore our world.  Growth seeking motivation is ignited within us as we explore alongside our trusted guides. 


Growth seeking motivation moves us forward in our development.  Using our caregiver as a trusted guide we develop the foundations of co-regulation.   We learn it is safe and desirable to engage with others. We begin to enjoy these experiences as we feel more and more competent and resilient when co-experiencing life with our trusted guides.  We learn how to share our experiences, our thoughts, our intentions. 


Guides learn how to take a step back so we can explore our autonomy, and we develop a sense of self.  Our competence continues to develop as we seek out more and more challenge, our dynamic growth is taking shape.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

Dynamic growth and development is the path to autonomy.  We learn how to dynamically adapt to our world. We learn how to be in a relationship, we develop the ability to manage uncertainty, become flexible, problem solve with multiple solutions, adapt to change, make plans, set goals, save our experiences, use the knowledge we learn to navigate life as we connect past, present and future experiences.  Autonomy, relatedness and well being is our ultimate goal.  Quality of life is the end result. We achieve all of this within a connected guiding relationship. 

HOW DO WE GET THERE?

RDI provides the roadmap to establish this crucial guiding relationship.  As you learn how to guide your child, together, you will have a new experience of your relationship.  Every child is different, based on your family's unique needs you will learn how to set up guiding engagements to build dynamic foundations, activate internal motivation and begin a journey of growth and dynamic development. Team Dynamic Minds will work with you, side by side, every step of the way setting goals and objectives on your journey to success.


For added support, RDI Extenders are available to work one on one with your child. Team Dynamic Minds is here to support you with whatever needs you have.
