The Sexual Violence Support & Prevention Office works closely with SFU’s Health & Counselling Services to offer specialized counselling supports for SFU and FIC students who have been impacted by sexual violence and intimate partner violence.
SFU and FIC students who have experienced sexual violence or intimate partner violence may access free, confidential, time-limited support from a counsellor who specializes in sexual violence and other forms of trauma.
The following group counselling sessions are facilitated by Larisa Fry, an individual and group trauma counsellor who works collaboratively with the SVSPO and Health and Counselling Services.
To learn more about these groups or to sign up, please click on the lins below or email Larisa directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
An 8-week gender inclusive, closed, weekly support group focusing on self-care, regulation and support through artistic / body expression and psychoeducation. For individuals who have had exposure or experience with person violence, family violence, intimate partner violence, or sexual assault. This could be a recent or historical event.
This group is intended for individuals who could benefit from connecting with others and learning new tools for regulation and self-care.
An open weekly support group for individuals of any gender identities who have experienced any form of sexualized violence.
The purpose of this group is to provide a safe space for participants to build community through safety and connection with other survivors.
Each week we will explore a theme that emphasizes resilience and resource development in support of participants’ growth and healing journeys.
This is an open group with new members able to join weekly, and is not intended to be a trauma-processing group. We support participants continuing with individual counselling sessions as needed in addition to group participation.
