Two *NEW* CARE Therapy Groups

Stronger Together: 
Trauma Therapy Group for Male-Identified Survivors
Tuesdays 3:00pm-4:00pm | February 23rd - April 20th 
This Spring 2021, CARE to Stop Violence will offer a trauma therapy group for male-identified survivors who have experienced some form of power-based violence* (PBV) in their lifetime.
This group will address common myths, provide information and resources to assist with coping and healing, and create opportunities for mutual support.  Groups can be a valuable part of the healing process by providing a safe place to share thoughts and feelings with others who have experienced similar trauma. This group is a confidentialclosed group that is trans-inclusive.
 Email jsybenga@umd.edu to express interest or to ask for more information.
* Common experiences of PBV include sexual assault, childhood abuse, intimate partner violence, and stalking.

Support Makes a Difference: 
Therapy Group for Secondary Survivors
Mondays 3:00pm-4:30pm | February 15th - April 26th 
This will be an open support group for secondary survivors. A secondary survivor is someone who knows a loved one who has experienced interpersonal violence, like sexual violence, relationship violence, sexual harrassment, or stalking. The intent of this group is to provide a space for you to share your experiences and concerns. This group will provide info on reactions to trauma, how to support a loved one, and ways to take care of yourself as a secondary survivor. 
 Email ebiery@umd.edu to express interest or to ask for more information.
