Program Description

Embers a 12-week trauma informed group to provide opportunities for healing for young women who have experienced trauma. We incorporate therapeutic art experiences, music therapy through drum circles, and yoga and breathing techniques for coping strategies. Young women learn the skills to remove themselves from unsafe situations, are able to identify safe environments, can identify someone for encouragement and support, have a safety plan, utilize reflection skills, value themselves more, and apply the coping strategies learned from the program to help rebuild from trauma. Referrals are sent from Genesee County courts.
