Violence, rape victims' workshop
GRAFTON Sex Therapist Joy Wheat would like to start a support forum for women who have been sexually or physically assaulted.
Ms Wheat has called the non-profit initiative WWWWW or Wounded Women's Weekly and Weekend Workshops and hopes to begin a 10-week semester on October 4 from 9.30am-12.30pm.
The workshops will run at the GP Superclinic in Clarence St, Grafton and all participants need to undergo a free assessment for suitability by Ms Wheat.
Victims of sexual or domestic abuse need to be referred to Ms Wheat by either a GP, psychologist, community health worker, police liaison, court advocacy, women's refuge or school principal.
If enough interest is shown in WWWWW, Ms Wheat said she would split the groups into two - one for sexual assault, the other for physical/domestic assault with the potential to create night workshops for working women.
Cost will be $10 a session to cover morning tea.
