Journeys Into Trauma Book

We are putting together a collection of stories from survivors of all types of traumatic experiences.   We are looking for stories from The Gatehouse and the community for this book with the tentative title “Journeys from Trauma”.

The over-arching purpose of this book is Voice. The voice of the people who have had their voice taken from them through the trauma in whatever form it was for them in their life. Within this arc we are also wanting to present the experience of hope and transformation to others who are dealing with trauma in their life.


Adult Support Program

At The Gatehouse we believe strongly in the need for community support in the aftermath of child abuse, our group self support structure is designed to facilitate social-reconnection, education and self support. The Gatehouse Adult Support offers a 15 week curriculum-based psycho-educational program for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
