This is the place to connect with FlowStory (FlowStory, PLLC) and BETTER ATX (BETTER ATX, LLC). FlowStory exists to work with YOU in your efforts to help youth and young adults reach their potential. Our goal is to support young people’s natural instincts to better their lives… to feel better, do better, be better, & have a better sense of belonging while making the communities they value better.
Executive Director, Dr. Raphael Travis, Jr., LCSW brings 20 years of mental health and public health research and practice experience to your fingertips. FlowStory opened its doors in early 2013. The goal is simply to offer the most innovative tools available that connect music, culture and well-being.
All work is grounded in an empowerment-based model of positive youth development, that connects youth and communities. A major part of this includes unpacking the role of music in people’s lives. We also build upon research evidence to reintroduce Hip Hop culture as a critical tool for growth in families, education, therapy and out-of-school time settings.
RESEARCH & PRACTICE (FLOWSTORY) + TOOLS = BETTER ATX
While FlowStory provides information and consultation about the theory, research, and specific youth work strategies, BETTER ATX provides the hands-on tools and resources created by FlowStory. All projects, activities and resources are research-driven.
