The Survivors' Forum
The Survivors' Forum is a space for students who have experienced sexual abuse to come together to share experiences, discuss themes and issues which affect them, support each other, and engage in 'survivor activism' if they wish. The focus will be on childhood sexual abuse, but the forums are open to all students who have experienced any form of sexual violence. Each month the forum will have a theme which we will explore together in the first hour, followed by a short comfort break, and time for reflection and more informal chats in the second hour.
The forums are facilitated by Silke Grygier, who is a survivor activist, psychologist, and dramatherapist, together with co-facilitators from her Not The Only One project. All facilitators are survivors themselves.
Please feel welcome to message me with any questions! Also, we know it's a big thing to attend a forum like this, so if there is anything we can do to help you feel more comfortable, for example if you'd like to meet the facilitators before the Forum starts, just let us know.
