Community Involvement

Trauma–particularly as a result of sexual violence–can be devastating to all of us–individuals, families, and communities as a whole. That’s why Hope For The Journey is committed to engaging the public and partnering with organizations in efforts to heal trauma and end sexual violence.

Research shows that when a community has access to evidenced-based mental health services and sexual education, members of that community have a better chance to heal abuse wounds and protect against sexual aggression.

 

Community Support

 

Together, we can do great things. Hope For The Journey is committed not only to providing the best trauma and sexual abuse treatment for the Austin-area, but also to supporting our local and global community partners. As such, we pledge 5% of profits to local non-profits also working to end and heal violence in Central Texas.

In Service Training at Mighty Kids Occupational and Physical Therapy

Thursday July 25, 2019

This is a training for the fabulous physical therapists and occupational therapists at Mighty Kids Occupational and Physical Therapy in Round Rock, TX. We will be teaching Mighty Kids’ staff how to recognize the signs that a child is experiencing a traumatic reaction to a PT or OT intervention. We will discuss typical triggers involved in physical touch and body movements associated with kids who have been sexually abused. We will then focus on knowing when to stop and use grounding/coping skills to lower the child’s anxiety levels. Then will discuss how to adjust treatment plans to avoid this continuing to happen, as well as when to make a referral for counseling services.

Parents Teaching Healthy Relationships at Hutto ISD

February 2020

This is a seminar for parents of students at Hutto ISD in coordination with Hutto ISD’s efforts to promote Domestic Violence Prevention Month. We will discuss what Domestic Violence relationships look like in teens as well as identifying risk factors. Because the strength of the parent-child relationship is one of the biggest resiliency factors in preventing interpersonal violence relationships in teens, parents and teens will be invited to take a quiz to rate their own relationships. Then, we’ll look at specific activities families can do in each area to improve their rating. Come and join us!
