Trauma Recovery Groups

Support groups are focused on trauma recovery for all ages, genders and types of trauma.

Promise Place offers therapy groups for anyone who has experienced trauma.  We have established several groups that teach appropriate boundaries, coping skills, positive social interaction and offer hope and healing to those that otherwise may not have the opportunity for healthy interactions.

 

The groups offered by Promise Place focus on the themes associated with trauma including fear, anger, hurt, worry and other consequences that result from trauma.  Teen groups address sexual assault, while our young groups focus on appropriate interaction, social stressors, emotional responses and issues of safety. 

 

We provide evidence based treatment and support through the use of therapeutic counseling and sensory based techniques to help assist in the sharing of and healing from traumatic experiences.  Trained advocates and licensed therapists facilitate the groups through gentle guidance, and positive role modeling all within a physically and emotionally safe place for children, teens and adults.

 

All groups are free of charge.

Sitting Like a Frog

Group for Kids ages 7-12

 

Mindfulness exercises for kids to help deal with anxiety, improve concentration, and handle difficult emotions.

 

Research shows that many students that are diagnosed with ADD and ADHD may actually be experiencing the underlying issues that are the consequences of trauma.  Often trauma manifests in symptoms of decreased concentration, low self-esteem and aggression, which can lead to bullying. Without intervention these cognitive processes and behavioral responses can lead to learning deficiencies, performance problems and problematic behavior.
