Sometimes referred to as “healing circles”, our peer-based support groups allow for the formation of relationships, the honoring of voices, and the creation of unity. The process is, at its essence, a story sharing process, which brings together people as equals to have open exchanges about difficult issues or painful experiences in an atmosphere of respect and concern for everyone.
The goal of this program is to prepare survivors of victimization to speak out about their experience in a supported, empowering way while identifying ways the community can advance greater protections and encourage deeper healing. Participants who graduate this program go on to become mentors to others and may become trainers and program facilitators. Workshops meet as a cohort weekly over 6 weeks, with a public Speak Out event occurring at the end of the cohort.
