Forming group connections
The groups are made up of 6-8 individuals, often based around similar gender identities or experiences. This group is intended to be a judgment-free, supportive environment. Involvement in healing circles allows members of the group to connect with others who may be experiencing a similar shift in their sense of self, fear or anxiety, or other resulting outcomes of trauma. Additionally, it allows for participants to have an external support system and a source to reach out to if other support systems are unavailable or disconnected from the individual’s particular experience.
