PAST: Trauma Exploration and Imagination Reclamation Group
A group for Cis and Trans Women of Color ages 25-40
This 8-week group will focus on the basics of trauma and its impact on people’s spirits, minds and bodies in the moment and over time. It will also help to break down the stigma surrounding traumatic experiences and responses. In addition to discussing healthy coping strategies and self-care, the group will explore their individual pathways to imaginative power and provide safe space for creative healing possibilities.
Creating A New Normal
This 8 week process group is for individuals who are looking to discover and get help with how to live a more robust lifestyle. In this nonjudgmental space individuals will explore their substance use with others. They also will be empowered to create a “new normal” that enhances their well-being, by incorporating new and healthier life choices. Through various exercises and discussions, group members will uncover the root of what is keeping them stuck in destructive behaviors, in order to replace those behaviors with more beneficial coping responses to stressors. The group will attempt to breakdown the beliefs that the individuals have of themselves and their trauma to discover, with support, how to overcome obstacles and live a more content existence.
