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.
31ST OF JUNE (1-3pm): SURVIVOR WORKSHOP (for all students who have experienced any form of sexual violence)
This workshop will be a chance to meet other survivors, looking at sources of support and how to cope with uni as a survivor. To sign up email student advice & wellbeing: email@example.com More info here.
SUPPORT GROUP [currently running, please email for interest in joining next year]
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. It will be taking place every 2nd Tuesday from 6.15-8.15pm. 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. To express you interest in participating in a support group in the next term, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Over the academic year we will run themed workshops for survivors, including survivor-only consent workshops. You’ll find upcoming dates here as well as through the Student Union. If you have any specific topics you’d like us to address through a workshop, please let us know!
