Trauma Informed Care Practices to Retain Placement & Empower Caregivers LIMITED
Limited Capacity seats available

Auberle has begun the 3 year journey to implement The Sanctuary Model of trauma-informed care across the agency.  This Model provides a method for creating a culture that can more effectively address healing from psychological and social trauma.  It integrates current brain and medical research, best practices in promoting emotional, mental and behavioral health and wellness and healing strategies for at-risk youth and their families.  The Model also addresses staff wellness with its “care for the caretakers” emphasis.  Sanctuary provides a guide for organizations who work with children and families to create a “trauma-informed community” that understands the ways that trauma “injury/hurt/pain” and chronic stress impact an individual’s behavior, overall health, and worldview.  One of its primary goals is to create a safe and healthy environment for healing and growth to take place.  A trauma-informed community challenges everyone, from staff to foster parents, to change the thought process from “what’s wrong with you” to “what’s happened to you”. 

As we have rolled out the Model to Residential and Foster Care programs, we have found it to be an excellent tool for retention for difficult placements.  We will share our perspective of 22 months of our 3 year journey to creating Sanctuary in Auberle and how it enhances and compliments Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI) already in place.   It is up to us to remain current on the best practices and research for helping our clients while addressing wellness strategies for our staff.  As an agency, Auberle prides itself on innovative practices and our interest in The Sanctuary Model was really the next logical step as we continue to innovate. 

At conference time we will be close to the end our year 2 for implementing The Sanctuary Model.  We will share the challenges and rewards in terms of staff/foster parent recruitment, retention, training, and on-going program operations.

The learning objectives for this presentation will be: 
1. Participants will be able to name the basic tenants of
The Sanctuary Model,
2. Participants will be able to conceptualize
The Sanctuary Model in all settings primarily as it pertains to Residential and Foster placements,
3. Participants will be able to critically analyze the value of implementing
The Sanctuary Model into their programs and agencies. The Sanctuary Model is a much needed tool to engage and train families to work with the ever-challenging children sent to us.
