Empowerment, Health, and Healing
A Support Group for Survivors of Sexual Assault and/or Relationship Abuse
Thursdays from 3:30-4:30 pm starting February 26th
Counseling and Psychological Services, Conference Room
JWW 516

This is a weekly support group for survivors of sexual assault and relationship abuse and is open to all genders. We will explore challenges of healing from sexual assault and/or relationship abuse and identify specific self-care strategies to promote empowerment and healing.

Each week, we will focus on a specific self-care strategy that we will discuss and practice as a group.  Topics will include reclaiming safety, responding to triggers, developing healthy coping skills, setting healthy boundaries, reclaiming sexuality, and creating healthy relationships with yourself and others. There is no pre-screening required for this group. Please contact Bita Shooshani or Laura Sobik with questions or to find out more about this group. You are welcome to attend at any time this semester.
