The "4 Pillars" of The Sanctuary Model


Trauma Theory

You may learn about the impact of trauma on the brain, and how that can impact behaviour. You may also hear this referred to as "psychoeducation" or psychobiology"


Self Framework

You may encounter the acronym 'S.E.L.F.' when you receive services from CPRI. SELF stands for Safety, Emotion, Loss, and Future. SELF is a way of organizing ideas so that everyone involved in care can talk and think constructively about these 4 important parts of healing, using language everyone can share and understand.


Sanctuary Toolkit

A Toolkit is another word for 'practices.' Since trauma-informed care is a different way of delivering services, The Sanctuary Model describes practices that can help maintain safety, encourage collaboration, and work together to achieve mutual goals.  While receiving services from CPRI, you may participate in 1 or more of the following: Community Meetings, Safety Plans, Red Flag Reviews, Team Meetings, Psychoeducation, Treatment/Service Planning, Supervision/Coaching, and Training.


Seven Commitments

The Sanctuary Model outlines a set of values (or 'Commitments') that help guide interactions between members of the community. Following these commitments helps everyone avoid stressful situations. This means that CPRI is committed to 1) Non-violence, 2) Emotional Intelligence, 3) Social Learning, 4) Democracy, 5) Open Communication, 6) Social Responsibility, 7) Growth and Change.

RAD refers to a very limited set of circumstances in which children are thought to not have the opportunity to develop any specific attachment to a caregiver. Onset of the problems must begin before age five and cannot be due to another mental health or developmental problem, and the child must have reached a developmental age of at least 9 months old. Children with RAD cannot or do not seek or respond to any comfort, even when very distressed or hurt. Extremely insufficient care, such as neglect or repeated changes of primary caregivers, without meaningful contact with adults, is thought to “cause” the disorder."},{"term":"resilience","description":"An individual\\'s ability to adapt to stress and adversity"},{"term":"Trauma informed","description":"Trauma-informed care recognizes trauma symptoms in clients and the role that trauma has played in their lives."} ]
