The RUMERTIME® for Colleges/Universities/Young Adults

What is the RUMERTIME® Process?

RUMERTIME® is a five-step social-emotional, problem-solving strategy

that supports individuals in their journey from a place of intrapersonal and interpersonal imbalance to a place of intrapersonal and interpersonal balance; and from unconscious living to conscious living.


“The agriculture metaphor in the CSS framework helps me to understand myself in relation to the experiences in my life and in my relationships with others. I especially like the “Tree” exercise because it helped me to identify the root causes of my struggles. Even better, I’m learning how to uproot those ugly thoughts and mindsets so I can live a healthier life.”

“The RUMERTIME Process™ is the most effective strategy for human services students/practitioners to use as they move forward in their work with self, others; i.e., families and clients and the community.
