Peer-to-Peer Mentorship

The key to our approach to healing is based upon finding common ground in relationships. Our approach provides the opportunity for survivors to come together with their peers to find comfort and healing in a judgment-free environment. Unlike a traditional mentorship model, our approach is grounded in a team perspective in which we believe that every survivor brings a unique and valuable perspective to the group. We believe this approach offers the new survivor a safe and understanding sounding board while, at the same time, helping the more experienced survivor progress in her or his own healing processes.

Conferences are thematically designed and tailored specically to different parts of survivors’ journeys. Depending on the theme of the conference, other workshops include topics such as health and wellness, nutrition, resiliency, parenting, survivor resources, and financial or career planning. To minimize financial barriers to attending, Special Ops Survivors covers the costs for all workshops, activities, meals and lodging for survivors.
