Our support group for survivors of domestic violence addresses issues surrounding relationships (healthy and unhealthy), self-esteem, safety, empowerment, early warning signs of an abusive relationship, stress management, and new coping skills. It also focuses on the dynamics of domestic violence and the trauma suffered by victims.
Our group is designed to heighten awareness about domestic violence including the cycle of violence, verbal and emotional abuse, power and control, and the reasons some victims return to an abusive relationship.
