Group Therapy at Kihihi EDJA Healing Center
Mental health is a critical component for any survivor of Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV). Counseling programs play a crucial role in any survivor's healing process. Our team has done an amazing job introducing different ways for survivors to receive counseling including home based counseling, school based counseling, counseling at Healing Centers, group therapy, and even phone therapy.
Offering multiple ways for survivors and their families to access counseling services, allows us to meet their needs and to ensure they’re getting what they need to move them forward through recovery.
Sometimes after a girl or young woman is assaulted, they discover they’re having a child as a result of their assault. Group therapy often allows girls and young women facing the same trauma to come together and help each other through the healing process. Unfortunately, these young mothers often face challenges providing for their children
Recently, after a group therapy session at the Kihihi Healing Center, all the young mothers went home with resources for their babies. They all left therapy with smiles on their faces because their babies each received clothes, a wash basin, nappies, baby powder, blankets, bed sheets, a mattress, baby bathing soaps, baby carriers, and more.
