Dialogue on Trauma and Healing (Dinner Provided)

Register Here Denim Day

The goal of this group is to provide those who experienced power-based violence (sexual assault, relationship violence, etc.) with a safe setting to share their thoughts and feelings. 

Participants have the opportunity to connect with other survivors, share their stories, and learn about the impact of trauma and healing

Post program, the group will be able to connect with campus and local resources, learn skills towards healing and find community among other survivors.
