We are excited to announce new groups beginning soon at RCASA to continue to assess the different populations impacted by sexual violence. The first is a support group for parents of childhood victims; the second being a workshop series for male survivors.
The new parent support group will begin February 21 and will continue on Mondays from 4-5pm. This group will combine educational information with support and therapy to address the specific needs and concerns of parents. This will also be a forum for parents to process their own secondary trauma and network with others who have had similar expriences. And though some of the information provided will aim to help parents of young children who have been victimized, the group is open to any parents whose son or daughter is a survivor.
The second group will be a workshop series for male survivors of sexual violence. These workshops will occur monthly and begin on April 4, from 5:30-6:30. This group will address the effects of sexual violence in general, but also the effects of this trauma that can be specific to male survivors. This group is open all males survivors over the age of 18.
If you have never been served by RCASA before please call ahead to arrange an intake session, 540-371-6771. All groups are free of charge and are confidential.
