Sanctuary is a clinical and organisational model which recognises the inherent vulnerability of all individuals and social systems to adversity, loss and change. In confronting this unavoidable aspect of the human condition, the Sanctuary model responds with a core belief that every individual and system has the capacity to transcend this vulnerability and overcome the impact of these potentially traumatic experiences.
