About the Partners Workshop
The Partners Workshop is 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 and questions, and insights explored in practical and meaningful ways.  This process is based on principles of transformative learning and empathetic learning. You will have the opportunity for personal reflection, the opportunity to talk with others about your reflections, questions, insights, and the ongoing opportunity to explore very specific, practical forms of the whole relationship.

Space is limited to 20 participants per workshop.
