Support Group Counseling
Support group counseling is a congregation of individuals who come together to discuss certain topics and share their daily struggles with domestic violence and/or sexual assault. Each support group meeting is facilitated by a Women In Need counselor. The size of the group varies based on the topic and the time/day of the meeting. The groups are designed to allow ample opportunity for each member to share and interact with others. Members are encouraged to share as much, or as little, as they feel comfortable.
Support group topics vary based on the needs of Women In Need clients. Past topics include: art therapy, self-esteem building, coping skills, learning daily living skills (balancing a checkbook, computer skills, etc.), coping with trauma and stress, book discussions, strengthening the bond between mother and child, and healthy living. Support groups generally run in the spring and fall.
For information regarding upcoming groups, call the WIN office for more information, 717.264.4444.
