The Stages of Healing/Recovery of the Lost Self Model and Framework for Organizational Change was developed from over years of clinical and advocacy practice with survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Written in 1994 by Rene Renick, MA, EMBA, and LPC and refined by Rene and Carrie Smart, MSW, LCSW in 2006, the model gives an overview of the healing process and critical interventions to help support a survivor in recovery from trauma and reconnecting with the self that has been lost as a result of experiencing domestic/sexual violence. This interactive training will deepen advocates’ understanding of the impact of domestic violence on a survivor’s self, as well as how the Stages of Healing model can be used to help advocates align their practices with survivors’ needs and to create and sustain a trauma-informed culture of healing and recovery within their organizations and communities.
After this training, advocates will be able to:
Recognize the six stages in the healing process
Identify effective advocacy interventions at each stage
Deepen their awareness around the conditions necessary to build authentic, respectful relationships
Recognize key critical barriers to healing
Identify gaps in programming
Identify strategies for community interventions to remove barriers
Implement practical strategies for centering their work around Survivors’ needs
