Support Groups

Support groups are available to individuals whose lives are affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, and trauma. All support groups are safe and confidential. Children’s groups occur at the same time as adult groups, to make participation for the whole family accessible. For infants and toddlers who are too young to participate in children’s groups, childcare is available by prior arrangement with YWCA. For more information, or to request childcare during a group, please call 765-423-1118.

This class is designed for parents, foster, or adoptive families and others serving children and teens who have experienced trauma. You will learn how to stay calm when your kids do upsetting things; help your kids learn from mistakes so they don’t repeat them; set enforceable limits; and avoid enabling and start empowering. It will help you gain powerful insights into how trauma affects the brain and the science behind healthy attachment. Facilitated by YWCA DVIPP’s Child Advocate, an independent facilitator and not an employee of the Love and Logic Institute.
