Group for Survivors of Sexual Trauma

The Women’s Centre offers Stage I and Stage II Groups for Adult Survivors of Sexual Trauma. The Groups are facilitated by a therapist who has training and experience specific to working with survivors of trauma and of sexual violence. The groups work from a feminist perspective and are offered when a minimum of 8 women have expressed interest.

Stage I

This is a facilitated 8-session program that runs once a week for 2.5 hours. It is an educational group for women who are beginning their healing process and want to build a foundation for this work by developing practical coping skills in the areas of managing flashbacks, setting healthy boundaries, building a support system, nurturing self-care and developing self-compassion.


This is a 10-session therapy program that runs once a week for 2.5 hours. This is a therapeutic group for women who are at a place in their lives where they are ready to being healing from the effects of their sexual abuse or assault in a group setting. Women will have completed the Stage I group prior to starting this program. Topics include trauma effects and the healing process, emotional numbing, exploring self-blame, body image, relationship effects, creating pathways for anger and grief, and reclaiming self-worth.
