NIP Offering Support Group for Family and Friends of Sexual Abuse Victims

LJ Twin Cities has the details.

The Concerned Persons Support Group is run by the Rape & Sexual Abuse Center, part of the Neighborhood Involvement Program. It is aimed toward loved ones [friends, family, partners] of victims/survivors of sexual abuse or sexual assault. They have developed an excellent set of new workshops which will provide information, support and answers to your questions.

Beginning Wednesday, July 23, they will cover six different topics:
7/23/08: Introductions and the Basics
7/30/08: Understanding Common Feelings
8/6/08: Working with the Legal System
8/13/08: Healthy Boundaries & Respecting Your Needs
8/20/08: Emotional Burnout & How to Avoid it
8/27/08: Transition from Victim to Survivor

Workshops are free of charge, begin at 6:00, and take place at NIP’s offices at 24th and Hennepin.

Complete details in the LJ post.

(As of right now, zero comments on this MinnPost story.)
