From Surviving to Thriving is a support group at NU for student survivors of sexual violence. This goal-oriented, 9-week group will offer a space for healing and restoring social connections while creating a structure to safely put words to one’s experience. The group members will focus on integrating past and present, grieving losses, and looking towards a future self.

The group will be facilitated by Carrie Wachter (CARE) and Kanika Wadhwa (CAPS).

Intakes will take place during Fall Quarter 2020 and Spring Quarter 2021. There will be two cohorts - one during Winter Quarter 2020 and one during Spring Quarter 2021. This group will most benefit those also currently engaged in therapy*.
