Who's appropriate?

Sanare Today offers an LGBTQIA+ Trauma-Focused IOP track to support members of our LGBTQIA+ community. This IOP group was intended to create a safer space for LGBTQIA+ individuals to bring their whole selves to therapy and to connect with other people who may share similar challenges. The LGBTQIA+ Trauma-Focused IOP is for those living with trauma related symptoms that are ready to address their trauma and learn skills to enhance their daily experience.

What is the group process?

Throughout the 12-week duration, group members can expect to focus on: Building a sense of safety & stability, unpacking & processing difficult experiences, and integrating what participants learn in group into their daily lives. Each of these components are crucial for supporting a thriving experience and therefore discussed frequently throughout session. Individuals will be challenged to enhance trust in themselves, utilize tools for responding to difficult emotions, and deepen their support systems.

"Change can be painful. It's inherently risky, accompanied as it always is by loss along with gains. It's also inevitable - as Octavia Bulter says, "All that you touch, you change. All that you change, changes you. The only lasting truth is change." In a group dedicated to celebrating LGBTQIA+ resilience and creative power, practice actively shaping change in your life while moving toward points of connection and belonging with yourself and others."
