In May of 2019, we are launching a new monthly support group series, Educators Assaulted by Students. This group is open to all teachers, custodial staff, bus drivers, lunch staff, substitutes, secretaries, and others who have been assaulted by a student. This non-clinical, psycho-educational peer support group will give participants the opportunity to meet others who share similar experiences, learn about healthy ways to cope with their victimization, and become educated about the healing process.
This series will offer participants a confidential space to discuss the impact a victimization has had on their careers and everyday life and better understand the impact of trauma. Registration is required to participate in the Educators Assaulted by Students support group series. A total of twelve (12) participants will be accepted. All of Victim Assistance Program’s support groups are free and confidential.
If you are interested in participating in this support group, please contact us by calling
. Additionally, we are looking to partner with Summit County schools to distribute support group materials to increase awareness of this new service available to school personnel. Please call 330.376.7022 ext. 218 to request a poster or flyers.
