Creating Sanctuarymakes some broadly challenging statements about human nature and social organization.

Creating Sanctuarymakes some broadly challenging statements about human nature and social organization. Dr. Sandra Bloominterweaves the individual and the social, the personal and the political, with the story of how she and a group of friends and colleagues created a traditional psychiatric milieu based on social psychiatry principles. Bloom and her colleagues have come to believe that unresolved, multi-generational, often forgotten trauma leads to a compulsion to repeat that is a powerful force in individual and social history.

Creating Sanctuary is a description of a hospital-based program to treat adults who had been abused as children and the revolutionary knowledge about trauma and adversity that the program was based upon. This book focuses on the biological, psychological, and social aspects of trauma. Fifteen years later, Dr. Sandra Bloom has updated this classic work to include the groundbreaking Adverse Childhood Experiences Study that came out in 1998, information about Epigenetics, and new material about what we know about the brain and violence

Creating Sanctuary makes some broadly challenging statements about human nature and social organization. Dr. Sandra Bloom interweaves the individual and the social, the personal and the political, with the story of how she and a group of friends and colleagues created a traditional psychiatric milieu based on social psychiatry principles. Bloom and her colleagues have come to believe that unresolved, multi-generational, often forgotten trauma leads to a compulsion to repeat that is a powerful force in individual and social history. Because of this unresolved legacy of trauma, all of our social systems are "trauma-organized," producing institutions which are unresponsive to and often directly counter to human needs. Creating Sanctuary presents the thesis that effective social reconstruction is only effective if we understand the biological, psychological, social, and moral legacy of trauma.

Sandra Bloom has compiled a concise exposition of what ails us together with reasonable approaches to remedies.

Her own compassionate experiences and willingness to enter into the depths of human suffering among the mentally ill, her willingness to see the evidence of conventional wisdom failing thereby exploding her comfortable paradigms has created a new path to wellness. She presents a path to wellness and healing not only for the mentally ill and those who care for them, but also for our society.

I do not have degrees in psychology or medicine, but only years of working with homeless addicts and alcoholics as a lay person. Having walked with and lived with very sick people through the maze of social services available, medical care treatments, criminal justice systems, addiction recovery systems, family systems, I have seen how complex and widespread is the dysfunction of our society. Trauma Informed Care, as presented in Creating Sanctuary is a most reasonable answer, a "must read" for anyone who wants to understand what is happening not only to the "them" but to us as a society.

"Creating Sanctuary: Toward the evolution of Sane Societies" is scholarly enough for textbook study, deeply cross referenced in supporting studies to support a new vision. I intend to read this several times to allow the many nuances of understanding saturate my mind more fully.

My love of Christian spiritual values wants a clearer link to spiritual healing, Dr. Bloom does not discount spiritual values, and it is easy to see the correlations to spiritual principles through out the book. Bill W. of AA reports having a sudden spiritual awakening that changed his life and our response to alcoholism/addiction profoundly, but my experience appreciates that most people experience a slow unfolding of understanding their illness, how to live mentally healthy through an unfolding understanding of a higher power/God.. During that process of deconstructing and reconstructing a life, Sanctuary is necessary.

From my observation, most homeless people have slid into a lifestyle of alcoholism/addiction/mental illness from life trauma(s) that are seldom effectively addressed. The costs to society through the medical, judicial, Social Services agencies for this failure to address trauma is exorbitant. "Creating Sanctuary" can help us become more effective in solving overwhelming social ills at the same time of helping just one. Amazing

Sandra Bloom's three books regarding appropriate environments for trauma survivors are must-reads for professionals and families who deal with trauma survivors. I hope this gets much wider attention--mental health care often humiliates and endangers when it should protect and heal.

Sandra Bloom emphasizes the need for safety in ALL THREE of her books--a subject which is sadly neglected by authors pushing quick solutions and promises of healing. Another book which describes the dangers of talk therapy and exposure for victims of severe trauma and recommends safe alternatives is Invisible Heroes: Survivors of Trauma and How They Heal by Belleruth Naparstek.

Here is a solution to our American problems. Too bad nobody in government is paying attention. There are specific prescription's here that are well thought out and tested. We need more passion at the street level from people like Sandra Bloom.

Best of the series

Sandra Bloom is our nation's expert on trauma informed care and sensitive services. I'd recommend anything she writes!

Goes way beyond blaming individuals for the horror of abuse, and holds the violent culture that abuse is embedded in accountable. Doesn't let individuals perpetrators off the hook, but is a window into the mechanism that produces them. Other people have addressed the topic of abuse and violence, but perhaps not as comprehensively as this book. Scary topic, but information and viewpoints needed to address this systemic illness.
