SUPPORT GROUP & WORKSHOP INFORMATION

Why participate in support groups or workshops?

Peer support groups can be a valuable part of the healing process for many victims/survivors of domestic and/or sexual violence. Participants can find strength, support, and validation by connecting with one another. HAVEN’s safe and confidential environment allows survivors to focus on healing. These groups promote self-empowerment, reduce isolation, and provide a space to build on existing strengths.

Support groups are facilitated by trauma-informed, confidential advocates and all groups are free of charge.

How do I register and join?

UPCOMING WORKSHOPS

Relationships and Boundaries Workshop

Date: Tuesday, November 16th
Time: 6pm to 8pm
Location: Virtual on Zoom

Relationships aren’t always how they look in the movies. During this holiday season and beyond, we want to make sure everyone has the tools to keep their relationships healthy and place boundaries where needed. We will discuss concepts and tools that will help everyone, whether we’re talking about intimate partner relationships or familial/household relationships.

We’ll discuss the impact of abuse and trauma on relationships. We’ll talk about emotional safety planning and how to manage the many emotions that come along with our close relationships.

This workshop is intended for adults who have experienced intimate partner violence, sexual violence, stalking, and/or human trafficking.

To register: please connect with an advocate by calling our confidential support line at 603-994-7233 or “chat now

Self-care and Mindfulness Workshop

Date: Tuesday, December 14th
Time: 6pm to 8pm
Location: Virtual on Zoom

For many of us, the holidays are a stressful time. Around this time of year, we often focus much of our energy on taking care of other people and, sometimes, we don’t get that energy back. Whether this is true for you or if you’re just looking for some tools to help care more deeply for yourself, please join us for a workshop in which we turn the focus back on you.

In this workshop, we’ll try to break down that elusive concept of self-care. What does it mean? How do I do it? We’ll do this with an added focus on mindfulness, the ability to be fully present in oneself and to be able to identify specific feelings and emotions within your mind and your body.

This workshop is intended for adults who have experienced intimate partner violence, sexual violence, stalking, and/or human trafficking.
