Sexual assault art therapy support group
This is a trauma informed art therapy group, which aims to support survivors of sexual assault identifying as female or male and are 18 years and older. Each group will begin with a short psycho-education piece about the impact of trauma on the body and mind, followed by a mindfulness practice for grounding before the group, and then the focus of each group will be around building skills to manage the effects of the trauma and to reconnect with their personal strengths and moving away from feeling stuck. Some topics examined through the group include:
safety, boundaries, grounding & emotional regulation, connecting/expressing authentic self, and building healthy connections with others.
-Reconnecting with self and others
-Learning useful tools for stress reduction and emotional regulation
-Shifting the focus from what happened (trauma) to the here-and-now and what is possible
