CTSurvivors Trauma Process Group (5 PM PST/8 PM EST)
August 31, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
CT Survivors Trauma Process Group is a weekly support group for conversion therapy trauma survivors. The group presents survivors with the unique opportunity to receive multiple perspectives, support, encouragement and feedback from other individuals in safe and confidential environment. On occasion the process group will bring in guest speakers who will share the experience of their own traumas, and what it is that has truly helped them to heal in their own lives. Guest speakers will discuss themes such as spirituality, mental health, community and social justice to name a few. We also host survivor stories on the third Tuesday of the month, where a group member will share their Hero’s Journey with a group discussion at the end. When meeting in a group with others who have had similar experiences, participants are able to come out of isolation and be heard by their peers. The common experiences and reactions allow participants to have insight into their behavior and to practice compassion and acceptance, both for themselves and others.
