Survivors of Domestic & Intimate Partner Violence
Domestic or intimate partner violence consists of a never ending cycle of verbal, emotional, sexual, or physical abuse, alternated by times of short lived calm or peace. It is not easy to accept that the person you love may never stop hurting you, regardless of the promises he/she is making. It is even harder to leave, especially if you have nobody to support you.
You will receive information, support, and resources at this group. Come find out what you can do to break free from the cycle of abuse. If you are in danger call 911 or the Domestic Violence Crisis Line: 503-469-8620. You can also find FREE services/resources at the DVRC: 503-640-5352
Healthy Boundaries in All Relationships
Do you often try to help or save others?
Are you often drawn into their drama or problems? Maybe you find it difficult to say no, or feel guilty when you do?
You are not alone, this is a big problem for many people.
In this group you will learn what healthy boundaries look like. You will also practice how to be assertive, stand up for yourself, say no, and teach others to respect your boundaries.
Parents/Caregivers of Children With Mental Disorders
There is not a lot of support out there for parents of children with mental health disorders.
Families who have sick children usually receive support from the community, but in the case of a mental disorder people shy away. It is mostly due to a great deal of ignorance in our society regarding the brain and it’s diseases, so these families are left with only a handful of support people, if they’re lucky.
Come talk candidly with other parents who faced similar challenges. You will find NO judgment, just a deep empathy and understanding of the toll mental disorders can take on the whole family.
Parents/Caregivers of LGBTQ Children
It is difficult for some parents to cope with the news that their child has a different sexuality or orientation than theirs. As a result many families are torn apart and children are deeply wounded.
Families of faith based backgrounds find this transition especially difficult and painful.
Please know that you are not alone.
Come get some information and talk with other parents who walked the same road as you. It is possible to maintain or even deepen the relationship with your LGBTQ child.
