Tools for Moving from Surviving to Thriving: For Female Survivors

Sunday, January 12, 2020, 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm



After experiencing trauma, be it a single incident or ongoing abuse, people can experience strong reactions that interfere with their daily lives including flashbacks, nightmares, overwhelming feelings, numbness, anxiety, isolation or avoidance of everyday situations.  These reactions can be short-lived. For some people, however, they can persist for years after the trauma.


This workshop is for survivors who have experienced sexual, physical or emotional abuse and continue to have disruptive and recurring thoughts, feelings and behaviors in response.  We will explore healthy ways to cope with the manifestations and reactions to traumatic events, providing concrete tools to reduce disruptions in everyday life, with the belief that awareness, understanding and education can equal transformation.

  • Light refreshments will be available
  • Pre-registration is required
  • Enrollment is limited to facilitate discussion
  • Limited number of partial scholarships are available

Facilitated by Judith Ierulli, LCSW
