This group offers the opportunity to break the silence and isolation of abuse by sharing with other women what each woman feels needs to be heard in a safe, respectful and healing group context.
The group is structured and flexible so that there is collaboration on topics relevant to current group members.
It is required that women have already been in counselling around this issue and that they continue to see a counsellor for support throughout the group process. The group is open to nine women.
