Moreton Bay’s First Trauma Retreat
A safe place to heal
A new approach to an old problem with the aim to provide a safe place to heal and rebuild their lives. Through a village style design incorporating shared facilities and a central community hub, individuals can focus on their own self-care while developing trust with qualified peer support.
Creating a safe space to heal
Build Moreton’s first trauma retreat.
A new approach
A village with shared facility
A central Community hub
Socially inclusive environment
Healing from an experience of trauma should be focused on the need to increase the capacity of survivors to be aware of and control their reactions to a range of trauma stimuli, including flashbacks, extreme emotion states, and interactions with others.
Importantly, this needs to occur within a safe and predictable external environment. A safe environment is one which supports and encourages this, and which does not recreate situations of humiliation, disempowerment, isolation, danger, and unpredictability.
It is important to be aware that such situations may be created unwittingly and by unintentional omission or commission of certain procedures and processes. By understanding the impacts of trauma, service organisations will be more aware of the possibility of retraumatising people inadvertently.
