The Sanctuary Model: A Trauma Informed Therapeutic Community

This webinar introduces the Sanctuary Model, a blueprint for clinical and organizational change, which, at its core, promotes safety and recovery from adversity through the active creation of a trauma-informed community. As an organizational culture intervention, it is designed to facilitate the development of structures, processes, and behaviors on the part of staff and clients that can counteract the wounds suffered by victims of traumatic experience.
