Trauma Survivors & Family Peer Support Group

TRAUMA SURVIVORS & FAMILY PEER SUPPORT GROUP

The traumatic experience impacts not only the emotional functioning of the individual but the psychosocial health of the survivor and their family. Trauma survivors – the victim and the families – may face social isolation, financial upheaval, and continuing feelings of anger, depression, or guilt. A survivor’s sense of self is challenged, and social support systems can be exhausted before recovery is complete. It is helpful to talk with others facing similar challenges. This peer support group setting offers a safe space to share the unique highs and lows of recovery while receiving encouragement from the group.
