Ongoing Weekly Support Groups for Women
Tuesdays - Changing Patterns
An educational support group for women experiencing negative emotional patterns in their daily lives, which may be due to victimization (domestic violence/sexual assault) or substance abuse. We will examine and explore those patterns and offer new options and tools for changing them. This is an on-going group. The group meets from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Thursdays - Parenting for Women
An educational support group for women which focuses on child development, logical and non-violent consequences for behavior and how to be a kind, yet firm parent. This is an on-going group. The group meets from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Fridays - Domestic Violence
A domestic violence support group is held on Fridays from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. The group is for women who are currently in an abusive relationship or who have experienced domestic violence in the past. Support group members will learn the definition of domestic violence, the effects of domestic violence on children, the cycle of abuse, the continuum of abuse, the differences between healthy and unhealthy relationships, safety planning and other related topics.
There is a $5 fee for each of these classes (Changing Patterns, Parenting for Women, Domestic Violence Support Group); however, fee waivers are available.
