Trauma Informed

One of the hallmarks of the “BSM Way” is our implementation of what the social sciences term trauma informed. This approach means that we strive to base our interactions with our guests and the services we provide to them on an understanding of the vulnerabilities that survivors of trauma (such as homelessness, domestic violence, and sexual abuse to name just a few) experience. We can then begin to address their needs in a way that does not exacerbate their trauma, but rather is supportive, free of anxiety, and avoids whenever possible the likelihood of re-traumatization.
