About Us & Our Forum
To provide a unique environment where folks who have experienced trauma can openly and safely talk. We strive to respect, validate, and learn from each other.
ACHIEVING OUR GOAL
Achieving our goal requires cooperative collaboration amongst members and staff. Members posts remain appropriate and relevant to topics. Terms of Service are clearly posted to help members maintain the dignity of the board. Members of this group are at a stage in their healing to independently regulate their own behavior, as well as keeping themselves safe while on the forums. Staff regularly monitor posts and replies to ensure the board remains a safe and comfortable environment of learning for everyone.
As a friendly and kind community, we validate each other as equally special and significant.
These forums are active and the community not too large or too small - about 400 posts per day. There are many forums on different topics. The topics range in subject matter also. You are welcome to interact as you feel comfortable.
This is a safe place for members. We encourage building coping skills, learning from each other and material shared. We discourage sharing explicit memories of past abuse. We feel that processing memories be done with professionals. There are no practicing therapists on these forums. Therefore, topics that call for therapist type responses are discouraged.
Feel free to look around. Realize that, as a guest, your view of the forums is minimal. These forums are otherwise private to the public view and/or search engines.
We have literally hundreds of articles and provide workshops for everyone. Please feel free to email me anytime with questions. I am also providing a tutorial that should help with navigating our site.

We are back on track to begin our workshops, webinars and meetings since we won't be doing conferences this year. We plan to start a workshop that previous went on for a year. Some may remember. It was a great workshop on coping with dissociation and ptsd symptoms. Our workshops and webinars are noninvasive, social, and even fun.
We do not 'charge' for the workshops, but are asking everyone to donate and/or participate in our fundraising auction.
This is how it works:
We will put up auction pieces. (Please do not put them up without approval from me).
If you are interested and a member here,please post your bid. If you are not a member, email me you bid, and I will post it here. (You can bid many times). The bidding will continue until the posted date. If your bid is the highest, I will email you. You will then donate the amount . Postage will be included unless out of the country.
Once we receive the amount, I will get it out in the mail to you.
We have done this before and had a really great time.
We can always use donations. Right now we need $250.00 to reinstate the webinar room for a year. This is a great price for nonprofit groups only.
We will put one auction item per post.
Let's get started - enjoy and thank you for your support -
