Healing From Narcissistic Abuse – Women’s Recovery Group
This group is a 12 session biweekly guided support group for women who are in the process of healing from unhealthy and abusive relationships with intimate partners or spouses, children, parents, and co-workers.
Narcissistic abuse can impact you in a number of ways, causing relationship trauma. This supportive group of women helps to address the trauma of narcissistic abuse by defining relationship trauma, understanding how your experiences have impacted you, providing information on the abuse experiences, clarifying ways to establish boundaries, and addressing the ways in which you have been hurt.
The group is a small intimate closed group which consists of 4-7 women. The group does have a curriculum, and also allows for sharing of personal stories and experiences. The women range in diversity of ages, race, sexuality, and types of narcissistic abuse experienced. Each member is screened and assessed prior to the group to ensure that they are a good candidate for the group. Ideal candidates must have had their own individual therapy prior to the group, or are currently in individual therapy.
Benefits of the group include:
Warm supportive environment of women who share similar experiences
Understanding how your experiences of abuse has impacted you
Understanding how your relationship fantasies and pattern have kept you stuck
Learning healthy communication skills
Discussion around your triggers and pain in relationships
Learning how to establish better boundaries
Additional resources to help you with your healing.
