Different types of relaxation and grounding techniques will be presented and demonstrated, and survivors will learn to incorporate these skills, as well as coping skills, on their own.

Secondary survivors will also learn the symptoms of sexual violence, and how to not only help and support their loved ones, but how to also help themselves with their own feelings of helplessness.
