Befriending Your Body: Yoga Support Group
Mind-Body Healing for Survivors of Sexual Assault
Trauma impacts a person's entire body, physically and psychologically. Many survivors of sexual violence find yoga to be a helpful complement to their healing process.
Psychological Services is offering a 10-week support group again in Spring 2014 for female students who are survivors of sexual assault, dating violence, stalking, and/or childhood sexual and/or physical abuse, which will incorporate education about trauma, discussion, and yoga. The goal of the group is to gain support from one another while exploring the impact of trauma on your life and body and learning ways to cope with the aftermath.
Dr. Marie Shaw, Assistant Director, Coordinator of Outreach and Consultation Services, at Psychological Services will facilitate the therapeutic component for the first half of each group session and Cheri Orndorf, Athletic Trainer and Certified Yoga Instructor, will lead the yoga component for the second half.
If you are interested in joining this group, please call Psychological Services (570-577-1604) to schedule an initial screening appointment with Dr. Shaw.
The group will be held on Mondays beginning February 3rd, from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m.
No yoga experience required!
The deadline to schedule a screening appointment is Monday, January 27th.
