In order to realize a world that embraces survivorship and is free of sexual assault and domestic violence, we need to create and sustain communities where we live, learn, work, play, and pray that embody Self-Reclaimed's values of transparency, integrity, openness, authenticity, and compassion. These values are the core of creating Safe Spaces for healing, empowerment, and unity.
Based on behavioral research, we reject approaches to this field of work that shame others for where they’re at in their healing or educational journeys. We do not endorse “cancel or call-out culture" but we advocate for actionable accountability. We are mindful in the ways we hold space for survivors to share their stories to mitigate re-traumatization and vicarious trauma. We believe that a trauma-informed approach is critical and we do this through person-centered services and the ongoing practice of vulnerability, cultural humility, and radical self-compassion.
Services are accessible and open to individuals of all socioeconomic status backgrounds, race and ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, abilities, and geographical locations; and are provided using a social justice and equity lens.
Self-Reclaimed will continue to learn and grow as research in this field develops and as the needs of our community, survivors, and allies, transform.
THEORY OF CHANGE
Self-Reclaimed’s survivor programs, Care Guidance and Reclaim Your Story, and community program, Safe Space Initiative (SSI), complete the two-pronged theory of change model that serves as a bridge between survivors, allies, community partners, and professionals in the field of sexual assault (SA) and domestic violence (DV). We provide support for members that identify as having been impacted by SA & DV who are seeking therapeutic community services, no matter where they are in their healing journey. Our focus on providing direct services for survivors allows for us to provide unique individualized care for each member depending on their severity of symptoms. We are able to carefully navigate through a clinical, trauma-informed lens on how we can create, maintain, and sustain a healing plan for every individual.
