This doctoral capstone project was completed in a partnership with REBOOT Recovery, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting trauma healing through participation in faith-based, peer-led courses. The purpose of this project was to provide program participants with additional content to promote improved occupational performance as they continue into the next phase of the healing journey after completing the original 12-week courses. The project was given the title “Week 13” within the organization to illustrate its role in guiding members’ next steps in trauma healing. Content areas included rebuilding healthy routines, reclaiming restful sleep, conflict resolution in personal relationships, education on participation in the existing REBOOT Advance course, and education about becoming a REBOOT course leader. Each content area also contained critical thinking questions, times for reflection, and step-by-step worksheets. Other content included a blog post to be utilized on the organization’s website. The ultimate goal of the “Week 13” project was that participants will gain knowledge and learn practical strategies to aid them in regaining balance as they continue the difficult journey of overcoming trauma.
