The S.C.A.R.s. Method® was developed to help people find healing from trauma through journaling. The acronym stands for the process of healing emotional and spiritual wounds into scars. Each letter represents a step in the journey to disengage from the trauma or event, discover the effects, assess ourselves and where we are in the journey, and develop a plan to rebuild the emotion, thought, and spirit. Finally, the small “s” stands for sharing our experience with others through storytelling to offer encouragement and hope.
SEPARATE: Separation offers a holistic view of the story and taps into undiscovered perspectives
CLARIFY: Clarity allows us to find the root cause of our emotions, coping mechanisms and thought patterns
ASSESS: Assessment takes stock of ourselves and where we are in the healing journey
REBUILD: Rebuilding offers a toolbox of planning to move forward and clear directions on seeking help and the next steps
share: Sharing our sufficiently healed self with the world offers hope and encouragement to others
