Our Mission Statement

Vidaview exists to help people, communities and organizations better know and value their real story, in order to gain greater clarity, resilience and vitality. We do so through research,  development, training, and dissemination and sales of knowledge and information-based  tools.

We aspire to augment the effectiveness of therapists and researchers from diverse training backgrounds, by providing uniquely powerful tools for gathering key personal and community information while enhancing the therapist-client relationship.

We are committed to developing robust, thoughtful and high quality tools, training, and programs that will ensure integrity regarding protecting the safety and personal information of story teller/clients.

Our decisions are based on the following core values and beliefs:

  • All people have the right to be treated with dignity and respect
  • All people have the potential to heal and change for the better
  • Our greatest and most rewarding success comes though collaborative teamwork with diverse partners
