In Creating Sanctuary, Dr. Sandra Bloom argues that our society is sick: we are emotionally numb, addicted to violence, alienated from ourselves and each other, and trapped in a vicious cycle of destructive behavior. By applying the successes from her treatment programs with severely traumatized individuals to larger group and social organizations, Dr. Bloom offers insights into how we can create safe environments that promote well-being.

It explores exciting new prospects for participatory and culturally safe research, and will be a reference resource for researchers of all levels and community practitioners.The book tackles questions of meaningful research practice: How do people with lived experiences of forced migration--Knowledge Holders--lead the way? Can arts-based methods bring about policy and social change? And what of ethical issues? By reflecting on the strengths and limitations of four research methods (digital storytelling, photography, community music, and participatory video), readers are invited to craft their own approach to arts-based projects.

This book explores the notion that organizations are living systems themselves and as such they manifest various degrees of health and dysfunction, analogous to those of individuals. Becoming trauma-informed as a system means healing as a system and that frequently necessitates the repairing of deficits in basic social and political skills that are necessary for democratic practice in any setting.

But interior decorator Emma Blomfield can help you start making the most of what you’ve got right now. Emma shares her tips on how to style and maintain every room in your house to achieve a state of meaningful living, and how to decorate and connect with guests through beautiful events.

For the last thirty years, the nation's mental health and social service systems have been under relentless assault, with dramatically rising costs and the fragmentation of service delivery rendering them incapable of ensuring the safety, security, and recovery of their clients. The resulting organizational trauma both mirrors and magnifies the trauma-related problems their clients seek relief from. Just as the lives of people exposed to chronic trauma and abuse become organized around the traumatic experience, so too have our social service systems become organized around the recurrent stress of trying to do more under greater pressure: they become crisis-oriented, authoritarian, disempowered, and demoralized, often living in the present moment, haunted by the past, and unable to plan for the future. Complex interactions among traumatized clients, stressed staff, pressured organizations, and a social and economic climate that is often hostile to recovery efforts recreate the very experiences that have proven so toxic to clients in the first place. Healing is possible for these clients if they enter helping, protective environments, yet toxic stress has destroyed the sanctuary that our systems are designed to provide. This thoughtful, impassioned critique of business as usual begins to outline a vision for transforming our mental health and social service systems. Linking trauma theory to organizational function, Destroying Sanctuary provides a framework for creating truly trauma-informed services. The organizational change method that has become known as the Sanctuary Model lays the groundwork for establishing safe havens for individual and organizational recovery. The goals are practical: improve clinical outcomes, increase staff satisfaction and health, increase leadership competence, and develop a technology for creating and sustaining healthier systems. Only in this way can our mental health and social service systems become empowered to make a more effective contribution to the overall health of the nation. Destroying Sanctuary is a stirring call for reform and recovery, required reading for anyone concerned with removing the formidable barriers to mental health and social services, from clinicians and administrators to consumer advocates.

Have you ever come back from a vacation only to feel more wiped out than before? Does the phrase “a little R&R” sound like an unattainable dream, something you'll “get around to” one of these days? What do you do when you need to “just be” for a while? The rigmarole of our daily lives takes a toll in energy, time, and effort. And the space and rest we need to recuperate—physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually—is usually pushed to the back burner. What we need is sanctuary, a place and space that allows us to reflect, rejuvenate, and restore. Terry Hershey's new book, Sanctuary: Creating a Space for Grace in Your Life, not only defines what sanctuary is but why we need it, where we can find it, and how we can create it as space and habit.For almost 30 years, Terry Hershey has been designing and creating personal sanctuaries, as well as helping others practice sanctuary within themselves. With practical ideas and his signature conversational tone, Hershey illustrates that sanctuary is not a new-age fad or lifestyle upheaval; rather it's a way to approach and embrace your daily life through a lens of grace, freedom, and contentedness.

The incredible true story of a place where animals heal and children learn to hope âe~When I started The Gentle Barn, some viewed it as a hobby or an obsession, some as an act of selfless devotion. To all of those people, I want to say, You donâe(tm)t understand. Iâe(tm)m not saving the animals; theyâe(tm)re saving me.' Ellie Laks was just seven years old when she was abused by her childminder. Through the troubled years that followed, animals were her salvation. Through near bankruptcy and a devastating fire, Ellie's dedication has not diminished. But it wasn't until she opened up the Barn to at-risk children and children with special needs that she realised how her animals could teach lessons in forgiveness and healing to others. This is a truly inspirational memoir, full of heartbreaking stories of hope and healing.

The Book of Shadows acts a little like a Wiccan's guide book, holding a varied amount of knowledge from rituals and spells to beliefs and traditions. Written by Gerald Gardiner in the late 1940's to early 1950's for his coven of Brickett Wood, it was written to guide beginning Wiccans. They used information from this book, adding and leaving out information to suit their own books. A Wiccan who joined Gardiner's coven and later a high priestess, Doreen Valiente, decided to rework Gardiner's original tome. She is credited with creating the Wiccan Rede and also contributed her own poetry to the publication. In earlier times, Wicca was mostly run by covens, which would have only one Book of Shadows, which was the responsibility of the High Priest or Priestess. However, today, Wicca has changed and often a coven will have its own Book of Spells while each individual Wiccan has their own singular Book of Shadows that they develop themselves. It is a highly personal book which reflects the individuality of each practitioner. Practitioners do not always belong to a coven and they will usually develop a Book of Shadows on their own. The Book of Shadows (BOS) is an item every Wiccan needs. It stores information on spells, rituals, materials, and knowledge you will need for your Wiccan practice and helps you start on your Wiccan path. It's important for Wiccans to create a Book of Shadows to store their knowledge. Take advantage of this great opportunity and learn how to create your own book of shadows! BLESSED BE!
