New Group: Survivors of Trauma Support Group

Posted on Updated on

This November, the IAS Counseling Services will be starting a new 12-week psycho-educational and empowerment group for survivors of trauma. This support group is for women over the age of 18 who are beginning the healing process, as well as those building and continuing forward to greater well-being. This is a small, safe, and wonderfully warm psycho-educational group that draws on empowerment, mindfulness and art therapy. It is an ideal supplement to individual therapy.  The goal of the group is to help individuals improve their functioning by helping them learn tools to stabilize their internal and external world.

If you know of someone who would benefit from this support group or would like more information, please contact Melanie Carlton at 714-887-7211 or email her at Please feel free to pass this information along as needed.  Intake appointments are available during the week or weekend and are currently being scheduled through November 5th.

Beginning on November 8th, 2014
Saturdays from 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Located in Santa Ana, near Seventeenth and the 55 Freeway
Cost is $20 per group (however sliding scale is available; no one is turned away due to lack of funds)
