SUPPORT GROUP INFO:

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 in a safe and confidential environment. 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.

VIRTUAL GROUPS

VIRTUAL Empowerment Yoga:

Tuesday Evenings│ 6:30pm-7:30pm │April 21- June 2, 2020
HAVEN and Yoga In Action have collaborated to offer a unique yoga practice for survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Empower Yoga provides the opportunity to practice taking control over your body by making choices about what you feel comfortable doing and not doing in a safe, supportive and non-judgmental environment without utilizing hands-on physical assists. Discover your inner strength, build confidence and learn coping skills to calm and get present when you need it most. This practice is adaptable to all age groups and levels of physical abilities.

The yoga sessions will be taught by Michelle from Yoga In Action. HAVEN Advocates are present at each class and are available to provide additional support throughout the program.

UPCOMING GROUPS

Music Therapy Support Group:

HAVEN and The Sonatina Center, a Dover based creative arts therapy practice, are offering music therapy as a form of the healing process. Group music therapy is the use of music with participants to achieve broad goals of increasing mental health, processing trauma, practicing coping skills, building and sustaining a positive peer group, and increasing personal self-expression and self-esteem through therapeutic techniques such as active music making, songwriting, and lyric discussion led by a board certified music therapist.

Group participants can expect an open and accepting space for group members to express and process their experiences and emotions, gain and provide support of peers, learn and practice appropriate coping skills, and gain autonomy and self-esteem through successful music experiences.
