One in Four is an equal opportunity service and we recognise that both female and males survivors are to have equal access to our service. All workshops are open to women and men.
Free – Awareness Raising Workshops for Clients – 2014
All workshops are delivered in an accepting environment that promotes self-awareness and exploration. Whilst individuals will take away what they need from our work together, the workshops are not a substitute for therapy and we always recommend individuals ensure they have emotional support in place if they feel the content may stimulate past experiences.
Feelings - Saturday 5th July 2014 11am – 2pm
All trauma survivors feel compelled to avoid their feelings. As a result, they do not learn to identify, contain or express their feelings in a healthy manner. The pattern perpetuates itself and survivors develop more elaborate and extreme methods not to feel their feelings. Depression, alcoholism, drug addiction, anorexia, self-mutilation, promiscuity and self-hate are among the unsafe strategies survivors use to avoid their feelings. These are all problematic, but they are not “the problem”. The actual problem is the survivors “inability to feel their feelings while keeping themselves safe”.
Please note that our groups are mixed gender and are free
The Warrior Within Group: Rebuilding Your Life
One in Four has been awarded a grant from the Big Lottery Fund: Awards for All, to develop and deliver group work sessions for survivors of sexual abuse and/or sexual violence. We are taking this opportunity to support group members to actively work through the, ‘The Warrior Within: A One in Four handbook to Aid Recovery from Childhood Sexual Abuse and Violence’ by Christiane Sanderson in a supportive group setting.
The groups are facilitated by trained and Accredited Counsellors / Psychotherapists over a seven week period. Each session lasts for 90 minutes with a membership of no more than 8 individuals. The sessions are open female and male group members. This is part of our aim to support individuals who access our services.
The group work is based on Part 3 of the book which focuses on “rebuilding your life” after childhood sexual abuse and/or violence. This new group work is an opportunity for group members to work with other survivors to deepen their awareness and capacity for growth.
The workshops focus on the following themes:
- Restoring your reality and trusting yourself
- Expressing your feelings and needs
- Maintaining Self Care
- Preventing Relapse
- Rebuilding Relationships
- Reconnecting to life
- Post traumatic growth
The group meet at our South East London branch: between the hours of 11.30am – 1pm at One in Four, 219 Bromley Road, London, SE6 2PG.

A NEW PLAY FROM MOSAC FROM THE MOUTHS OF MOTHERS is a powerful and inspiring drama which tells seven true stories of child sexual abuse using verbatim theatre techniques.
FROM THE MOUTHS OF MOTHERS was created by London-based playwright Amanda Stuart Fisher from 14 hours of interviews with mothers who had discovered that their children had been sexually abused.
Alright, he got his silly five years but he only done eighteen months or something and he’s free now – he can do what he likes. But all three of my children have got a sentence for life.
The play shares with us the voices of mothers who have had to fight to get the support their children needed in the face of terrifying abuse.
Through these interweaved narratives, we learn about failings in Britain’s judicial processes, a lack of support and recognition in the social services and doctors who overlook the physical signs of abuse.
Crossing all walks of life, the play brings us stories of the mothers who become fighters for their children, who risk losing everything in their bid to protect their children from further abuse.
The judge said: ‘if I make an order to allow your father to apply for contact, you realise you have to comply, you have no choice.’ I just basically stood up and I said I don’t care who tells me… I will not subject my daughter to further abuse. I would rather go to prison’
FROM THE MOUTHS OF MOTHERS was created as a collaboration with Mosac, a UK charity which supports non-abusing parents and carers of children whose children have been sexually abused and The Royal Central School of Speech & Drama, University of London and Awards for All.
FROM THE MOUTHS OF MOTHERS will be at The Pleasance, Islington from 22-25 May. Tickets are £12, £10 concessions and can be purchased at www.pleasance.co.uk.
