Partners Program: One-Day Workshop & Bi-Monthly Group Support

Partner’s Program:

One-Day Workshop 

Offered for partners (Boyfriend/Girlfriend/Husband/Wife) and support persons (Parents/Friends/Colleagues/Professionals) who are connected with a survivor of childhood sexual abuse that is currently enrolled or who has completed a Gatehouse group program. The one-day workshops explore being the support person of a survivor of childhood sexual abuse (CSA). The support person, and survivor are encouraged to attend together.  This introductory session creates the space for support persons (e.g., non-CSA survivors) to actively engage in an experiential, holistic healing journey where both people have their experiences, questions, and insights explored in practical and meaningful ways.  This process is based on principles of transformative learning and empathetic learning. You will have opportunities to engage in personal reflection, and to speak with others about your reflections.  You will also have ongoing opportunities to explore very specific, and practical forms of the whole relationship.  ***Confirmation of registration is required to attend***

Please Note: The partner’s one-day workshops are offered for the partners/support persons and survivors (who are currently registered to attend, attending, or have completed a Gatehouse phase 1 program) to attend together.

One-Day Partners Workshop Dates: To be determined.

Workshop Time Frame: 9:30 am to 3:30 pm

Cost: $25 per person
