Women’s Trauma Recovery Group
A Safe Space for Exploration and Healing
Facilitated by Melanie Marklein, PhD and Gina Yu
January 11 -May 3, 2022 (no meeting March 15)
The Trauma Recovery Group (TRG) is a 16-week, goal-oriented group focused on decreasing the impact of past trauma on your current life. The group is open to female-identified adult survivors of interpersonal trauma (e.g., emotional/physical abuse or neglect, sexual abuse/violence).
Participants will be invited to explore and process their trauma in this small group setting, with structured work on a specific aspect of their recovery.
The TRG is a safe, collaborative healing space for people who:
have been victims of trauma or abuse
have done some trauma-focused work in individual therapy
would like to further understand and decrease the impact of past trauma on their current life
have achieved consistent safety and stabilization with PTSD/trauma symptoms (no self harm, substance abuse, or hospitalizations in the past year)
Group members are required to be in individual therapy at least twice a month during the group and must be willing to sign a release between individual and group therapists.
Fee is $50/session (can be billed to insurance as group therapy)
For more information or to schedule an initial phone screening, please contact Melanie Marklein at email@example.com or call (217) 778-4134.
*The TRG is based on the book “The Trauma Recovery Group: A Guide for Practitioners" by Michaela Mendelsohn and Judith Lewis Herman, et al.
