Sanctuary® is a trauma-based model of treatment that uses principles of therapeutic
community to create a safe environment where people can heal from traumatic
experiences. Originally developed by Dr. Sandra Bloom and colleagues for use with
adults in short-term psychiatric settings, the model has since been adapted for use
with children, families, and adults in a wide range of settings. Through didactic and
experiential methods, this presentation will explore the Sanctuary model® and one of
its core aspects, the SELF compass, as a useful framework for guiding counseling
and psychotherapy when working with children and adolescents who have
experienced trauma and other difficult life circumstances. Case examples will be
presented that draw from the presenter’s experience integrating the Sanctuary®
approach in creative clinical work with children and adolescents in both in-patient
and private practice treatment settings.
