DIGITAL EMPOWERMENT GROUP: 3rd Oct – 21st Nov 2019 (Thurs 5.30-7.30pm)
Would you like to improve your confidence, learn digital skills and create anonymous messages for other women about your journey and the support you have accessed?
Over 8 weeks, participants will complete a digital story using photography, scriptwriting and recording, to explore identity, life stories and messages.
Stories will be led by each participant and they will not be asked to disclose anything they do not wish to talk about.
Please note places are limited and this is a one-off group.
This group offers you the opportunity to meet other women who have experienced sexual violence in a safe, supportive space so that you can:
- Explore how society’s attitudes towards sexual violence have affected you
- Learn and practise positive coping strategies
- Identify and develop positive future goals and steps towards these
- Increase your peer support network
MINDFULNESS GROUP: Thursday 7th Nov-12th Dec 2019 (5.30pm-7.30pm)
Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland and Mindful Therapies and a group of women service users have developed a specialist mindfulness course for women survivors of sexual violence.
If you would like to learn and practice mindfulness in a safe, trauma-sensitive, women-only space, this 6-week course may be for you.
