As part of our continued practice in CBR, the CBR Collaborative 2.0 and REACH 2.0 staff team is taking time to reflect and write about each of these principles. Keep an eye on the REACH 2.0 blog and newsletter over the coming months for posts titled “Reflections on CBR Principles” to learn more about how we intend to engage with and apply these principles in our work.
