Did you grow up feeling fear in your home?
Have you ever been in a relationship that felt scary or unpredictable where you felt like you always had to be on guard?
If this is familiar, a domestic violence peer survivor support group might be good for you.
Domestic violence is not limited to physical abuse but can include emotional abuse, sexual abuse, financial abuse, threats and/or intimidation. Being in any kind of abusive relationship influence how we see ourselves, our relationships and also how we make decisions or how well we trust others.
A peer support group is a way that survivors can connect with others who have experienced something similar in a low-key, non-threatening space. Survivors of past groups report feeling stronger, more confident and more willing and able to set personal boundaries and create healthy relationships.
Note: This group is now an drop-in (open) group which means you do not have to attend every meeting.
A new support group starts Wednesday March 15 and runs for six weeks through Tuesday April 19. We meet evenings in Durham. This is a free group which is LGBTQ affirmative group and open to female-identified people only.
