The Abraxas Academy uses The Sanctuary Model® for Trauma Informed Care as the framework for treatment. The Sanctuary Model® is a blueprint for clinical and organizational change which, at its core, promotes safety and recovery from adversity through the active creation of a trauma-informed community. Sanctuary emphasizes: the importance of healing from psychological and socially traumatic experiences; community principles; restoring connections with others; and mutual accountability through the S.E.L.F. Model and the Seven Commitments. The Seven Commitments include Non-Violence, Emotional Intelligence, Social Learning, Democracy, Open Communication, Social Responsibility, & Growth and Change.
