The Sanctuary Institute’s Five Day Training is a dynamic learning experience in which leaders from an organization receive didactic instruction in the concepts of the Sanctuary Model as well as skill building and practice in using the tools over the course of four days. The fifth day is spent with a small group of leaders and faculty to outline a timeline and specific structure for consultation with your site to maintain a consistency in meeting milestones across the whole organization.

Training is open to organizations only.

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.
