Teen Survivor Support Groups


Date of Publication
February, 2014


How do you craft a psychoeducational support group for teen survivors of sexual abuse and assault that addresses their unique needs and acknowledges the effects of sexual violence in their lives? What practical steps do you need to take in forming and facilitating these support groups to keep them securely anchored in the values of our field? This webinar focuses on facilitator-tested steps to use empowerment-based advocacy principles, an anti-oppression framework, and trauma-informed approaches, with survivors leading the way.

Learning Objectives
  • Integrate empowerment-based advocacy principles into teen survivor support groups.
  • Use the principles of trauma-informed services to shape support group practice.
  • Apply an understanding of oppression issues to create an accessible and inclusive group.
  • Create a survivor-led, teen-empowering group experience.
