MORE ABOUT THIS GROUP
Long after experiencing rape or sexual assault, you can still have strong feelings of grief, shame, guilt, fear, or a sense of isolation and disconnection from others. It may feel too daunting to begin building trust and emotional or physical intimacy in a relationship. Or you may suddenly struggle to recognize what a trusting relationship looks like. It may also feel too scary to open up to people around you because you're not sure they'll understand.
This group is all about regaining your self-worth and sense of empowerment and to help you recognize that you're not alone. It offers a safe, healing space for woman survivors (ages 18 and up) to support and empower each other, and to learn new skills to help navigate through relationships and deal with difficult emotions that come up for survivors. Additional goals of the group include:
Having a safe environment where you can be heard, believed, and validated
Reclaiming your identity so you don’t feel defined by the trauma
Exploring topics like trust, intimacy, and boundaries to help you confidently seek out healthy relationships
Changing your relationship with the inner critic so it has less control over your self-esteem
Learning about how the trauma of sexual assault affects the mind and body, including practical coping skills that utilize the mind-body connection
Understanding how societal and cultural issues have impacted your experience
Using group talk therapy, expressive arts, and psychoeducation to help you process feelings of grief, shame, fear, and disconnection.
This group is for you if you:
Want explore what you can do about the effects of the trauma that you're experiencing NOW rather than revisiting and processing the trauma itself in depth (referrals are available if you'd like support with this through individual therapy)
