Resilience & Violence Against Women
Few women contact the police when they are victims of sexual assault or violence. Often, women feel they won’t be believed or they will be blamed. When sexual or physical violence is reported, they are subject to a lengthy and demoralizing legal process with no guarantees of a favourable outcome. Furthermore, women from patriarchal communities and religions have historically been marginalized and relegated to positions of submission to men’s authority. Even in Western cultures, there exists leniency towards male perpetrators as evidenced by sentencing outcomes and continued acts of violence.
Resilience & Education
Making the decision to return to school as an adult takes courage. You may be forced to step outside of your comfort zone and revisit past negative experiences. You may anticipate the challenges of balancing your studies with managing your family and job responsibilities. Finding the self-confidence to take on these challenges is the first step towards realizing you are full of potential and have a lot to offer.
Resilience & Religious Trauma
How do you handle rejection? Do you brush it off or does the fear of rejection hold you back from taking chances? We’ve all been rejected by romantic interests, potential employers, or social groups, but what if you were rejected by your family? What if your own parents rejected your very existence and ostracized you for leaving the religion of your upbringing?
