Content of the Course
This course will be facilitated by male and female therapist. These group sessions will include:
-Setting rules, boundaries, and creating a safe space for healing based on respect, acknowledgement, support, and compassion for yourself and fellow participants.
-Sharing in a safe manner with the opportunity to talk about and receive support from the facilitators and group members.
-Meditations and visualizations to assist in releasing hurt, loss, grief, anger and to set healthy boundaries and promote self care.
-Interactive exercises and interventions based on specific topics aimed at dealing with shame, guilt, anxiety, anger, worry, PTSD, boundary setting, and interpersonal relationships to assist with one's journey towards healing.
-Cleanses for the removal of suppressed energy.
-Grounding exercises and closing of the session.
Each session will include psycho-educational strategies and interventions to overcome triggers, ongoing hurdles, inter-relational problems, and other emotional issues and to enhance and strengthen your boundaries.
Participants wishing to engage in this psycho-educational group should be engaged or willing to engage with individual therapy as the content can bring up unresolved issues from the past that you may need support with. Although clients’ stories differ the themes and patterns of abuse are often quite similar.
This course offers psycho-educational interventions, strategies, exercises, and games to assist you to settle into the group, build confidence, and develop skills for self care and healing. This as well as the support from one another can help the individual and the group to break through the confines of secrecy, shame, and unhealthy patterns for coping and living life. Participants can grow to a place where they experience compassion, resilience, and healing as they honour their own to experience and live life more fully on their terms.
