We are pleased to offer the following groups:
Caregiver Support Group
Daytime groups offering support for those in a caregiving role. Participants meet others in similar circumstances, and develop new ways of coping with the pressures of caregiving.
Choices and Changes Group: Creating Safe and Healthy Relationships
A ten week group for women who want to explore their patterns of choosing and relating with intimate partners.
Expressive Arts Therapy Group
For female survivors of sexual abuse. This 12-session group for survivors facilitates self-expression and healing through the mediums of visual art, clay sculpture, papier mache, and other forms of artistic expression. No artistic experience needed. The group is provided in a safe, nurturing environment by a qualified art therapist and co-therapist experienced in providing therapy for survivors.
Peaceful Families Group
For children whose lives have been affected by domestic violence. Includes a mothers’ group offered at the same time. In a supportive environment, children learn that the violence is not their fault, and have the opportunity to share their thoughts and feelings with others. Transportation and child care are available.
Redefining Me Group
A 10-week group for women who have experienced sexual abuse and/or abuse in an intimate relationship.
