Parent Support Group Guide, Washington Coalition of Sexual Assault Programs
This Guide expands upon Circle of Hope within the specific context of groups for non-offending parents and is intended to be used in conjunction with it. Parent support groups can be remarkable tools for supporting a family’s recovery from the trauma of sexual abuse. We respect the people who run parent groups, as well as the parents who have the courage to participate. Facilitating these groups is rewarding but challenging. This guide offers information about parents’ needs, ideas on how to form and sustain a support group, a suggested curriculum, and abundant resources.
