Purpose: This project will address the issue of lack of services to adult women survivors of sexual assault. The lack of appropriate group healing practices and support for women in three Saskatchewan communities (Lloydminster, Prince Albert and Saskatoon) will be addressed. A curriculum for group sessions will be developed and piloted. Activities for participants will include: recognizing how sexual abuse has affected them (self harm, depression, addictions, etc.), learning new coping skills, and helping women to improve their overall chances to develop/return to healthier lifestyles. The group session will be developed, piloted and evaluated during the project and incorporate feedback from participants to revise and improve the material.
