Domestic Violence / Intimate Partner Violence Survivor Peer Support Group


Did you grow up feeling fear in your home?

Have you ever been in a relationship that felt scary or unpredictable where you felt like you always had to be on guard?

If this sounds familiar, a domestic violence survivor support group might be a good option.

A support group is a way that survivors can connect with others who have experienced something similar in a low-key, non-threatening space. Survivors of my past groups report feeling stronger, more confident and more willing and able to set personal boundaries and create healthy relationships.

Domestic violence is not limited to physical abuse but can include emotional abuse, sexual abuse, financial abuse, threats and/or intimidation. Being in any kind of abusive relationship influence how we see ourselves, our relationships and also how we make decisions or how well we trust others.

This closed (not open to drop in people) support group starts Wednesday August 16 and runs for six weeks through Wednesday September 20. We meet evenings in a confidential location in downtown Durham. This is a peer-led (meaning the leader of the group {me, Elizabeth Johnson} identifies as a survivor), trauma-informed, LGBTQ affirmative group that is open to female-identified people only. This group is free and is limited to 8 people. Participants must attend the first evening of group. Click here to contact me or register.
