Beyond Trauma Women’s Group

Program & Curriculum

This program is designed to help women gain insight and skills to better deal with the difficult and painful experiences they have encountered in life. In this group, women learn to understand and manage the effects of trauma specific to their lived experiences as women. This will help them understand more about themselves and to develop healthier relationships. Curriculum is from Beyond Trauma developed by Stephanie Covington with influences of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Experiential Therapy, and Narrative Therapy. Each session is two hours long, once per week.
