DCRCC CONTINUUM OF CARE & COUNSELING PHILOSOPHY
Individuals who have experienced any form of sexual violence have survived a profound violation which can lead to deep, difficult feelings—including shock, shame, anger, and grief. These feelings can impact a persons’ relationship with family, friends, partners, and work. Whether you experienced sexual violence recently or decades ago, it is possible to heal, and you are not alone. DCRCC has trained therapists to support you in FREE individual or group therapy.
The DCRCC Clinical Program exists to support and empower survivors of sexual violence. Our therapy is based on empowering the survivors to regain control over their lives, helping the client to have choices, understanding that education is power, respecting their right to self-determination with the understanding that all forms of oppression are connected.
The DC Rape Crisis Center is deeply committed to the health, wellness and saftey of our clients, as well as the broader community.
