Sandra L. Bloom, MD, of The Sanctuary Model.

The Sanctuary Model introduces itself with the line, "by Dr. Sandra L. Bloom", and gives the following descriptive information:

The Sanctuary Model® represents a theory-based, trauma-informed, evidence-supported, whole culture approach that has a clear and structured methodology for creating or changing an organizational culture.

The four concepts: Safety, Emotions, Loss, and Future (S.E.L.F.) represent the four fundamental domains of disruption that occur in a traumatized person’s life and within these four domains, any problem can be categorized. Naming and categorization are the first steps in making a problem manageable.

From 1980-2001, Dr. Bloom served as Founder and Executive Director of the Sanctuary programs, inpatient psychiatric programs for the treatment of trauma-related emotional disorders.
