This group is not a support group where the girls come in and share their personal story. This group is intended to be more of an educational group to helps identify areas of their life that have been affected by the trauma that they experienced or might experience. Although, throughout the process, this natural connection might be built among the group.
This group will provide the girls with the skills that they need to help them stay grounded in the present, rather than getting stuck in the past, as this is often a common response to trauma. These will be integrated throughout the 6 weeks and they will come away will a wide variety of learned skills.
This group will be interactive in that they will complete activities, as well as be given a journal that they can take home to process their thoughts in between group.
