Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center

Winter 2016 with Peer Led Support Group

It has been an exciting semester for SAPAC’s Peer Led Support Group (PLSG), a confidential, peer-facilitated community that provides a space for student survivors of sexual violence to discuss concerns and practice self-care. PLSG meets twice a week, on Sunday and Wednesday evenings from 7-8:30. At meetings, we begin by encouraging participants to discuss their weekly “highs” and “lows,” what they have done outside of meetings for self care, and any other concerns that they are interested in bringing to the group.

Fall 2015 with Peer-Led Support Group

This semester’s experience within the Peer­Led Support Group has been truly groundbreaking. Not only have we continued to grow in membership, but we also have increased the frequency of our meetings to twice a week. This has allowed students to both engage more actively with the PLSG community and to have more flexibility when their academic schedules would have otherwise conflicted. Additionally, with the help of our fellow SAPAC volunteers and staff members, we have continued to spread the word of the value of a drop-­in, confidential support group as an option for survivor care.
