Implementation can take the form of a 3-year experience which ensures your whole organisation is trauma-informed. Or, you may wish to start with 3-day training to build trauma informed practice, or a one day workshop to create awareness within your team. We also offer a range of flexible professional learning programs that can be tailored to your need.
Full three-year Sanctuary Model implementation
The Sanctuary Model is implemented through a collaborative process, led by a steering group and core team from your organisation, instructed by the Sanctuary Professional Learning Program for all staff and supported by a MacKillop Institute faculty consultant, to build on the strengths of your organisation.
The MacKillop Institute supports your organisation through a series of steps, which progressively align the practices, attitudes and philosophies of Sanctuary’s trauma-informed approach with those of your organisation:
- Climate assessment
- Five-day training
- Establishing a Core Team
- Train the Trainer
- On-site consultation
- Phone consultation
- Mid-implementation review
- Guides and manuals
- Become an accredited Sanctuary organisation (optional)
We understand this is a significant undertaking and therefore we offer a range of professional learning options. Each option can be delivered as stand-alone learning experience or combined to gain a greater understanding of The Sanctuary Model and its benefits.
The MacKillop Institute offers professional learning programs, short courses, retreats, masterclasses, presentations and consultation options to help you get started. Our practitioners can tailor learning to increase your trauma knowledge, cultural intelligence or implement specific tools within The Model.
