Auberle is thrilled to announce our three-year journey to implement The Sanctuary Model™ of trauma-informed care across the agency. The Sanctuary Model™l creates a culture that can more effectively address healing from psychological and social trauma. It integrates current brain and medical research, best practices in promoting emotional, mental and behavioral health, and wellness and healing strategies for at-risk youth and their families. The model also addresses staff wellness with its “Care for the Care-takers” emphasis.
Sanctuary provides a guide for organizations who work with children and families to create a “trauma-informed community” that understand the ways that trauma (injury/hurt/pain) and chronic stress impacts an indiviudal’s behavior, overall health and world view. One of its primary goals is to create a safe and healthy environment for healing and growth to take place. A “trauma-informed community” challenges everyone to change the thought process from “what’s wrong with you” to “what’s happened to you”.
As an agency, Auberle prides itself on innovative practices and our interest in The Sanctuary Model™ was really the next logical step as we continue to innovate.
