Yorganop has chosen the Sanctuary Model © as our therapeutic model of care. Our Sanctuary Model is embedded in Culture and enables us to create a safe organisation that will support Aboriginal people to cope effectively with trauma and stress and to experience healing.
Our Sanctuary Model gives us:
- Shared Knowledge – being trauma informed
- Shared Values – our commitment to Non-violence, Emotional Intelligence, Social Learning, Democracy, Open Communication, Social Responsibility, Growth and Change
- Shared Language – a framework to help us understand and plan together and
- Shared Tools – strategies that we can use to bring Sanctuary to our everyday work.
Sanctuary is for everyone at Yorganop: children and young people, carers, staff and management.
