Women’s Coping Skills Group for Survivors of Sexual Trauma


Our VOICE Counselor, Melanie Gordon-Calabrese, LPC and Master’s in Counseling student, Laurie Jackson will be offering a six-week group counseling series for women . The group will be held Wednesdays from 11:00 to 12:30pm, at the Our VOICE office.

This group is focused on empowering survivors of sexual trauma by increasing understanding of trauma, its effects, and daily coping for trauma symptoms. Sessions will address these topics through education, art, and connection with other survivors with the goal of creating a coping foundation for living and healing. Member confidentiality and creating a safe space is of the utmost importance, therefore this will be a closed group. Potential members will be screened prior to the group start date. For more information please contact Melanie or Laurie at 828-252-0562.

Group starts on October 8, 2014.
