To safely place complex trauma survivors together in a group environment is one of the most healing interventions that can be offered to complex trauma survivors. It is a place where relationships are managed, supported, and show growth. Complex trauma survivors have been interfered with in so many ways. Usually that interference has occurred in major developmental stages, which in turn creates alienation from healthy outcomes in these developmental stages. By partaking in a group with other survivors, complex trauma can be understood, supported, ameliorated, and healed. By participating in a group, complex trauma survivors find others. They find they are not alone. The process of uncovering complex trauma in a counselling relationship is one level of healing. But uncovering complex trauma in a supported group environment with participants who are also complex trauma survivors can be very efficacious for healing.
