The Apostles’ House Prioritizes Trauma-Informed Care and Self-Care

 

In the journey of healing, empathy and understanding are crucial, especially for women and children who have faced trauma. The Apostles’ House provides a safe haven and promotes deeper awareness of trauma’s impact alongside the significance of self-care in the healing process.

At the core of the Apostles’ House philosophy is a dedication to trauma-informed care. This approach goes beyond recognition, delving into a profound understanding of trauma’s effects and implementing practices that foster healing and empowerment. Through continuous training and supervision, staff members are equipped to interact sensitively and compassionately with clients. Collaborating with Building Blocks of Hope, LLC, Founder Dr. Brittany Harden Oleka and her team of licensed practitioners provide weekly group therapy sessions to support our women and their children.

Recognizing that caring for trauma survivors requires more than professional expertise, the organization emphasizes holistic self-care for both clients and staff. Despite the challenges, prioritizing activities like exercise, adequate sleep, and time with loved ones is vital for well-being and quality care provision.

Safety, both physical and emotional, is central to trauma-informed care. By creating secure environments, the Apostles’ House lays the groundwork for healing and empowerment, addressing guests’ past experiences of violence, abuse, and stress.

Dispelling misconceptions, the Apostles’ House provides professional development and clinical supervision to staff, aiming to empower guests rather than constrain them. Acknowledging the unique challenges faced by providers who have experienced trauma themselves fosters genuine understanding and support.

Ultimately, the Apostles’ House serves as a beacon of hope and healing, championing trauma-informed care and self-care principles. By fostering compassion and empathy, it offers not only shelter but services that empower individuals to rewrite their stories.

In a world where trauma is prevalent, organizations like the Apostles’ House demonstrate what’s achievable when empathy, understanding, and self-care unite to pave the way for healing and renewal.
