The Waverley Integrative Framework (WIF) underpins all of our teaching.

The WIF is a relational approach that emphasises the importance of the relationship and adherence to the core conditions of:

  • genuineness

  • unconditional acceptance

  • empathy

It reflects on all core aspects of human functioning, namely:

  • relational

  • physical

  • emotional

  • volitional

  • rational

  • spiritual

Considering the core needs each person has for security, self-worth and significance, the WIF approach has a Christian world-view at its foundation. It is underpinned by Christian anthropology that understands humans as created in the image of God and thus relational at the core of their being, and intrinsically valuable.
