PAAR is now offering A Support Group for survivors of sexual violence

PAAR’s Support Group will provide psychoeducation around the impact of sexual trauma, and survivors will be provided with the support and encouragement from each other. Our goal is to help survivors by:

• Learning healthy coping skills and self-care practices
• Exploring feelings and developing healthy strategies to understand difficult emotions
• Enhancing self-esteem and assertiveness skills
• Gaining the necessary skills to build healthy boundaries and identifying support networks.
