Psychoeducational Groups

Due to COVID-19, this group now meets via Zoom. If you would like to join or have questions, please call our hotline at (215) 985-3333. CORE group is not a trauma processing group, so we will not be sharing details of one’s trauma. This is a space to talk through common emotions after trauma, build new coping skills, develop healthy boundaries, more. It’s a great space for self-reflection and learning with others.

CORE Group

Core is a drop-in, psychoeducational group open to anyone 18 or older. It’s led by WOAR Crisis Advocates and Graduate Interns (not therapists) and runs in 10 week cycles.
