During the Fall 2022 semester, PEGaSUS will be facilitated as a 6-week program designed to support student survivors of all genders who have experienced adult sexual assault.
PEGaSUS will begin Wednesday, October 26; 2-3pm and run for six consecutive weeks (excludes Fall reading week).
HOW TO JOIN THE GROUP: HRES@dal.ca
SCHEDULE OF SESSION TOPICS

Sessions are facilitated as one hour discussion circles. Our time together in group will focus on helping each other understand the impacts we may experience as the result of assault, as well as how we may respond to those impacts. PEGaSUS believes strongly in bringing survivors of all genders together safely in community with others, we hope that participants will feel able to share areas that they have found challenging in their healing as well as identify and celebrate their strengths.
PEGaSUS is open to student of all genders from Dalhousie University and University of King's College.
PEGaSUS is hosted by Lyndsay Anderson, Sexualized Violence Advisor and Amina Abawajy, Education Advisor.
