This is a casual group for those of us who would like to socialize in a safe and compassionate atmosphere. We can talk about how trauma has impacted our life, learn how we can relate to each other, express fears and hopes - while we combat our urge to isolate. I completed an 8-week Post Traumatic Stress Recovery (PTSR) program at Homewood Health Centre in Guelph, and I learned about coping tools and other helpful facts that make recovery so hard. I don't want to be a teacher for this group, rather I see this as an opportunity for us to socialize and maybe talk about different aspects of PTSD recovery, such as self-nurture, relationships, identifying feelings, boundary setting, addictions, grief, and the value of play.   I hope this group gives us the chance to talk about our unique struggles and our efforts to feel safe, while among friends who can relate and understand.
