Healing sexual trauma in the borderlands
These workshops are coordinated by The Borderland Rainbow Center through a grant from the Texas Association Against Sexual Assault (TAASA). Our goal with these workshops is to introduce healing modalities that can be used alongside therapy or on their own. We coordinate so individuals who find solace in these modalities may continue their healing journeys with our artists.
Our goals through this grant are to improve accessible sexual assault services and healing methods for marginalized and underserved communities. These services include licensed professional counseling to include individual and group therapy, alternative healing programs (such as these workshops), peer support groups, and population specific focused services that respect the values, behaviors, expectations and norms of the community at every level of service delivery.
These workshops, while therapeutic, are not therapy per se and are not intended to take the place of an individualized therapy plan. Please consult with your therapist, counselor or licensed medical professional.
