NOT THE ONLY ONE @ SOAS UNIVERSITY
Not The Only One is a project designed to reach out to university students who have experienced childhood sexual abuse. As a group, CSA survivors are often invisible, not only to society, but also to each other, and suffer from stigma and isolation. At the same time, survivors tend to experience great difficulties especially in young adulthood, and often face a lack of understanding and support. Through workshops, presentations, support groups, and open forums, this project aims to create spaces for young survivors to come together, raise awareness, and offer specialist therapeutic support. At SOAS we are collaborating with the Enough is Enough Campaign and are offering support groups and workshops for students who have experienced any form of sexual violence at any time in their life, including recently.
In collaboration with the Student Union and the Enough is Enough campaign we are running a support group over the whole academic year. This group will be open for SOAS students who have experienced childhood sexual abuse or any other form of sexual violence at any age, including recently. Before joining the group you will be offered an individual meeting with the facilitators to have a chat to make sure the group is the right thing for you and give you an opportunity to meet us and ask any questions you may have. We will publish start dates and session times on here soon. To express you interest in participating in a support group in this term, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
SURVIVOR ONLY CONSENT WORKSHOPS
As part of the Enough is Enough consent workshop program we are offering survivor only consent workshops for all students who have experienced any form of sexual violence at any time in their lives. You can attend the survivor only workshop instead of the regular workshop if you feel more comfortable in this setting, or additional to the regular workshop if you'd like to attend both. Sign up here.
Over the academic year we also aim to run further themed workshops for survivors. You’ll find upcoming dates here as well as through the Student Union or Student Support Services. If you have any specific topics you’d like us to address through a workshop, please let us know!
