3.H.26. Respectful environment
NARR Standard 3.0: 3.H.26. Maintain a respectful environment
At its most basic level, maintaining a respectful environment is fostering a family-like environment, reflecting the psychological sense of community4 and social model (physical environment; authority base; staff role). The community culture is positive, recovery-oriented, and strengths-based. Residents move from thinking about the individual to supporting one another in their needs. This extends from staff interactions with residents, resident’s interactions with leadership and staff, and resident interactions with one another. Additionally, operator knowledge about trauma-informed care and promoting resiliency provides a toolkit to facilitate a respectful, safe environment.44 — NARR Standard 3.0 Compendium
