More Program Details
The workshop series includes activities such as yoga and reiki, creative outlets, and boundaries work to foster a tight-knit community and give survivors an essential toolkit of interactive coping and self-reflection skills that will help guide them in their healing journeys. This is not a space where participants share or discuss their past trauma, but rather a space where participants are united by their healing journeys. The undergraduate workshop series will be led by The Thriving Initiative's undergraduate student co-facilitators, bringing in community specialists each week who will lead the group through a variety of intriguing and interactive workshops. The graduate student group held separately and is led by UCSB alumni co-facilitators or fellow graduate students.
All participants will be asked to agree to standards of group confidentiality to create a safe and welcoming space for healing, growth, and compassion for all. The workshops will be taking place on a weeknight evening in person (walking distance from campus), and all necessary materials will be provided free of charge. The exact time and location of the series will be shared with participants after registration.
