PAAR is now offering Virtual Support Groups for survivors of sexual violence.


PAAR’s Virtual 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.


The Support Group is comprised of 10 sessions that are cyclical, and individuals can join at any time.

Who: The Support Groups are inclusive of any gender identification and expression over the age of 18.

When:  Virtual groups will meet every Thursday evening from 6:00pm-7:00pm.
