SAP and CPS to host series of healing workshops for students impacted by trauma

Dealing with trauma is an unwelcome challenge that can interfere with day-to-day life. The Survivor Advocacy Program (SAP) and Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS) have collaborated to create a workshop series to serve Ohio University students who have been impacted by trauma. The spring workshops follow a successful run of the series in Fall 2019 Semester and were developed to help students gain skills that can help with healing from trauma.

The series will include psychoeducation and activities on topics that are relevant to survivors of trauma. The program will familiarize students with healing practices such as grounding skills and mindfulness, sleep hygiene, self-compassion, reclaiming your body, healthy relationships, healing through art, and coping techniques for breaks.

Any student who has experienced trauma is welcome to attend one or all of the sessions, and attendees do not need to be current clients of CPS or SAP. These workshops are exempt from Title IX mandatory reporting, which means that anything a student discloses will stay confidential.
