On the Model and the Author
The original website and model was created to recognize and honor a relationship polarity and connection tool developed to support young people in making meaningful connections with each other and the adults that were trying to support them. As popularity of the model has grown, it has also evolved new layers and a new name. The Returning to Compassion model was renamed the Figure It In Empowerment model after multiple suggestions that businesses and corporations would benefit from this model if customized and rebranded to reflect more of the cognitive frame and the result that comes from practicing it (i.e., people describe feeling empowered!).
