Blueprints Level 2 is currently full starting August 22, 2023.
Blueprints Level 1 will resume in the Winter/Spring 2023
Blueprints Level 1
is an introductory trauma skills group for queer and/or trans folks (16-29) with lived experience of substance use. This 10-week group draws from the works of Judith Herman and was developed for those who are just beginning to come to terms with the impacts of trauma. We will explore the legacy of trauma and how it affects individuals, relationships and substance use. The goal of the group is for folks to deepen their own understanding of trauma, build new coping skills and develop increased compassion for themselves and others
Blueprints Level 2
will expand on the skills and knowledges learned in Level 1. In this group, we will relate our past experiences of trauma to their living legacies in our current lives. To do this, each participant will develop a trauma-specific goal that can be met within the time-frame of the group. For example, you may want to disclose certain aspects of your trauma with a loved one, or develop new understandings and ways of engaging with a specific trigger. These present-focused goals will allow us to share about our experiences of trauma from a structured and grounded place.
