Childhood Sexual Abuse and Adult Sexual Assault
You’ve lived with feelings of shame and discomfort for years, possibly decades. You buried these secrets with hopes of them never surfacing. You’ve done your best to try and create a ‘normal’ life but something still feels ‘off’. Many of us share similar perceptions of our experiences and are in need of a place to shed our heavy internalized blame and guilt. This group consists of females who are ready to process unresolved emotional pain associated with sexual trauma.
Is this support group right for me?
This support group is designed for female survivors of sexual trauma (Childhood and/or as an Adult). This group is appropriate for women who experienced childhood sexual abuse and/or an assault as an adult. This virtual group meets once per week. Participants will be led through a series of focused topics, in which target the development of coping skills by examining how to navigate: consent and autonomy, sex and intimacy after trauma, interpersonal and romantic relationships, and an establishment with the body connection. Group members will learn skills to help advocate for needs and develop self-soothing interventions for continued healing after trauma.
These groups are didactic and interactive in nature, meaning that the facilitator (a Licensed Psychotherapist) leads and structures the group. Each week, the group facilitator guides all discussions, and processes by providing education, answering questions, and teaching structured exercises and interventions.
Sharing is not required, however attendees are always given the opportunity to do so, if they yearn for emotional and intimate interpersonal connections.
These groups are designed as an interactive experience in which participants learn how to connect with vulnerability while gaining insight into emotional needs. Participants have the options to utilize an anonymous Pseudonym faux name if they choose to do so. All participants are kindly asked to have their cameras on to add to the cohesive experience.
