In a supportive environment we will discuss positive coping techniques and how to handle triggers through methods of self-care. The workshop will include the following interactive sessions:
- Resiliency and Coping - What to do before, during and after you share your journey or speak. Learn how to make speaking about sharing and part of the healing process. Learn from other survivors and share ways you practice self-care.
- Expressing Your Story - How to take care of oneself before, during and after sharing the journey of resiliency and empowerment. Learn techniques for how to make telling your story empowering and healing. Sharing your journey can be a powerful and healing tool, in a safe environment learn about this process.
If you are considering speaking during the Survivor Speak-Out at Take Back the Night in April, this workshop will be very beneficial.
