Workplace Wellbeing Institute™ Model of Compassion Based Trauma Resolution and Compassion BasedTrauma-Informed Care & Practice (CB-TICP©) combines our Attachment Relational Theory (A.R.T.©) and Dr Ann Jennings Two Foundations of TICP (2007a, 2007b, 2008, 2009)
1. UNIVERSAL ASSUMPTION of INCLUSION: That is that the vast majority of people (up to 90%) who access mental health, substance/alcohol abuse, family/youth/disability, legal aid, housing and income support assistance & treatment services have a history of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE), Trauma and Complex Trauma Histories (Centres for Disease Control & Prevention, 2010; Frazer et al, 2014; Jennings, 2008; Waite, Gerrity & Arango, 2010).
2. NON-MALEFICENCE: ABOVE ALL ELSE, DO NO HARM: One of the universal ethical/moral principles across all areas of health-care & health-care service & delivery.
These Two Foundation Stones support our Three Pillars of CB-TICP© through our Attachment Relational Therapeutic Models of:
1. SAFTEY & SECURITY: Developing the concept and practice that as workers, teachers and employees in areas of health, community/family/youth/disability services and education we can become what is termed, "transitional secure attachment figures" for the consumers/clients/students who access our services
2. CONNECTIONS: These are the Relationships that develop when Safety & Security is established which enable traumatised consumers/clients/students, often for the first time, to begin to use their self-regulatory skills & capacities. This why we believe the term "The Relationship is the Intervention" is one of the primary methodologies in the Resolution of Trauma
3. MANAGING EMOTIONS: Learning and adopting skills and practices, for both staff & consumers/clients/students, that develop & enhance Emotional, Social & Relational Intelligence. When a strength-based model of naming, and therefore taming, the often complex & powerful emotions associated with complex/developmental trauma an environment of trust, respect & compassion is achieved (Siegel, 2009, 2011, 2013). C-B-A.R.T.-TICP© model employs a variety of Mindfulness & Wellbeing practices to achieve this purpose (please use these links to read more on our therapeutic programs; Mindfulness in Schools; Mindfulness in the Workplace; Wellbeing Practices)
