Coming soon!

Sexual assault is a traumatic event that impacts women physically, emotionally, spiritually and socially. This confidential group will offer an opportunity to meet in a safe environment to support one another in the recovery process. Group members will learn new ways of dealing with issues such as social pressures, relationships while healing from the assault, academic impacts and re-setting healthy boundaries. It will also address grief concerns that sometimes arise after an assault

This group will be offered Thursdays from 3:30-5:00 p.m., starting as soon as we have enough group members to go forward. Group size will be limited to eight members. This group is for students only. For more information on a similar group for faculty and staff, visit this link.

Please contact Margaret Edwards, LPC, for an appointment to discuss whether this is the right group for you. She may be reached at 243-4611, or by email at me8n@virginia.edu. This group is being offered jointly by the Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center and CAPS, and will be co-led by Margaret Edwards (trauma counselor at the Women’s Center), and Tim Davis, Ph.D. (psychologist at CAPS).
