In our RESTORE and RENEW programs, we use our own curriculum, Treasured One, to lead survivors of trafficking and sexual exploitation on a journey of discovering the truth of their value and identity as the foundation for healing.
The Treasured One curriculum was developed over years of working with the boys in our aftercare home and learning from pioneers who have developed resources for trauma survivors. It is designed to follow a modified Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) process, while pointing to Jesus as Healer.
The lessons and the workbook create a step-by-step process for counseling trauma survivors, specifically survivors of sexual abuse and exploitation, while equipping their caregivers with healing tools as well. The Thai language curriculum is user friendly and relevant to SE Asian culture. It was designed as an equipping tool for national workers to use in a culture where professional counseling is extremely limited.
This restoration curriculum takes 6-12 months to walk through and empowers healing, aids attachment, unpacks trauma, educates, encourages hope through testimonies of other survivors and strengthens survivors and families by facilitating holistic healing to all who have been affected by trauma.
The curriculum helps a survivor find his or her voice, provides a platform to process the past, and tools to walk in freedom in the future. This curriculum continues to be modified and its impact assessed as we walk through it with those in our RESTORE and RENEW programs.
