The Sanctuary Model of Trauma-Informed Care
We cannot hope to heal the clients we serve if we do not first heal the environments in which they receive care. A trauma-informed service setting is itself a community, and therefore as vulnerable to the effects of trauma, chronic stress and adversity as the patients/clients they treat. Successful trauma-informed interventions look at both clients and the organization itself as vulnerable to the effects of trauma.
