Default Start trauma group this afternoon

I start phase one of my trauma group this afternoon. I'm a bit nervous about it, as it's been a while since I've been in group therapy. And even though it's focus is skill building it's still trauma focused and that's scary.

I hope you get what you need from it. Exploring trauma is hard but can be rewarding too. I've found my IOP to be good even tho it's hard most days.

Hope things went well for you. A skills-based trauma group is part of my life now too,...and mine is very different from what I've done in the past, with a more standard group therapy. Still hard and yes, scary, at first...but getting easier. I hope it will for you too.

Thanks everyone for the support.

The first group was good. The format is review group guidelines, check in, educational piece, and then close with a piece of poetry.


The check in was a lot deeper and emotional than I'm used to. I could really relate to a lot of what the other women were saying, and it dragged up some unpleasant emotions for me.

I realized I'd maybe been a bit over confident going into the group, and that if I really let my guard down to experience my emotions, it could be tough. But I know I need to do that in order to process stuff. It's just a little scary.

I think I'm really going to benefit from the program, it's just going to be hard.
