Healing Groups for Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse

Shofar Coalition and Jewish Community Services are proud to present two 16-week healing groups for women survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Beginning in late October, 2008 these groups will meet in a private, confidential location in the Pikesville area.

Creating Balance and Wellness: Recovery Through Art

Tuesdays, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.Through artwork and reflective writing participants can:

  • release emotions and regulate feelings
  • identify environmental stressors
  • build support networks
  • find a safe place for challenging memories
  • learn creative problem solving

No art skills needed! Art Therapy offers nonverbal creative expression that promotes a safe environment to explore the challenging issues of sexual abuse.

Facilitator: Peggy Kolodny, MA, CPC, ATR-BC, a board-certified art therapist with 27 years of experience working with survivors of sexual trauma.

Participants will shift their worldview from fear to confidence while expanding their coping strategies and learning how to value and care for themselves.
