Physical Distancing Creates New Opportunity to Connect
It’s okay if things look different during and after COVID-19. Since this onset of the “shelter in place” and “safer at home” guidelines, Care Lodge continues to stretch and grow through this new frontier of physical distancing challenges. As professionals who work with survivors of relationship trauma, we understand the vulnerable feeling that coincides with the need to connect and re-energize with others who “get” what you’re going through.
We have also learned that being able to choose how you show up to connection groups is essential to feeling safe while remaining confidential (or hidden from the other participants). With the increased knowledge of how to operate Zoom, many people find comfort in being able to choose an image to replace the live video chat or rename themselves. As participants and staff become more familiar with each other, they can decide when and how they wish to share details about where they are in their journey as a survivor.
We hear from many who have begun the healing process that when they hear stories of survival from others who have faced relationship abuse, or begin to share their story, they slowly feel the weight of the past begin to melt off their shoulders.
If you or someone very close to you has been a survivor of domestic violence or dating violence and you would like to connect to the free services we have to offer outside of emergency shelter, email Harmonee today at Harmonee@carelodge.com.
