The Sanctuary Model
The Sanctuary Model® exemplifies a theory-based, trauma-informed, trauma-responsive, evidence-supported, holistic cultural approach that has a clear and structured methodology for creating or changing organizational culture.
It is a toolkit that alters the human mind on our harmonious efforts to work, think, act and stay together. The effectiveness of this model is heavily dependent on the ways of implementation by groups of people using it’s developed methodology.
As an organizational culture intervention, it is designed to facilitate the development of structures, processes, and behaviors on the part of clients and the community-as-a-whole that can counteract the biological, emotional, cognitive, social, and moral wounds suffered by the victims of traumatic experience and extended exposure to adversity.
The Sanctuary Model rests on four “pillars”:
With the exploration through various dimensions of this practical model, maximum potential can be achieved in maintaining a Sanctuary culture to the best of it’s capabilities.
Over the course of the 30-40 years, the objective of using the method is to initiate a change that provides cohesiveness, innovation and creative context of healing from a psychological and social traumatic experience.
The Sanctuary Model aims to teach individuals and organizations the necessary skills for creating and sustaining non-violent lives and non-violent systems and to keep believing in the unexplored possibilities of peace and well-being for all of humanity.
