Hey guys, I was referred to a therapist by the name of Joanna Colrain. Her number is 770-220-4059. She is a facilitator at many survivor retreats and is highly regarded in her field and our field!

She maybe putting a group together or facilitating someone in doing so. Another friend on here from Atalanta was looking, so I asked the guy who put together the group in LA, because he used to live there. He also said if you would prefer a male T, she could suggest or refer you.

Hope this helps!

I contacted Dr. Beggs I am the fourth person to express interest. He needs 4 more before the group can begin. So contact him if you are interested.

I am here in the burbs of Atlanta. Maybe we can all formulate our own support group. What do you think?

I'm sure it wouldn't hurt. We aren't exactly flooded with group support options here in Atlanta. I would absolutely participate in anything that would benefit my recovery.

Is the group going yet?

I would appreciate any info.

Thanks

Count me in, also. I live in Lawrenceville; NE perimeter. Probably couldn't attend if downtown; depends on frequency and timing.

I know of a SNAP group (clergy sexual abuse) that has started meeting on the third Thursday of the month, in the Emory area. A different 'flavor' of abuse, but support nonetheless. Contact me if interested.

I know Colrain as she facilitated Simpsonwood retreat. Excellant T, with thorough knowledge of abuse and its ramifications.

I am also searching for a new T; any suggestions would be appreciated.

Got your back,
kayak

It does not appear that anyone is watching these posts, with the possible exception of some of us who might be interested in an Atlanta group.

I am getting impatient here...maybe "we" should do something ourselves.....

more later

thanks

Nick and all others who are interested in an Atlanta support group:

First, we CAN have a support group without a professional facilitator. There are thousands of these PEER support groups through out the world for other issues.

Second, the Healing Circles here are examples of PEER support groups that work.

Third, if you are interested in helping to form a PEER support group, please let me know. The previous attempts for a tereapist-facilitated group have not worked, and I for one am getting impatient.

Please let share are thoughts on this.

Gerald

All right guys... My "T" (whom I have an immense amount of respect for) has tentativly agreed to facilitate a group in Alpharetta. HER name is Karen Savrin and she has been my T for the last year+. She is only going to require 5 members for the group.

Her email is:
ksavrin@earthlink.net

Contact her if you have any interest.

Thanks,

GW

I e-mailed Randy Beggs awhile ago but he said nothing is going on in Atlanta area right now. I asked to be put on his list for future groups if they happen.

ok, I just got an email from Dr. Beggs. He needs 8 people to commit in order to facilitate a group. I am one of four or maybe five. The other 3 or 4 you know who you are.

I encourage 4 more people to come forward and sign up

here is his email

drjrbeggs@mindspring.com

thanks
Nick

I am still here. We need an Atlanta support group. Rather than sugestions about contacting a T, why don't we just start compiling a list here?

That way we'll know how many people in Atlanta will join a group.

All Atlanta survivors,

There is a lot of talk going on about an Atlanta peer-support group. There are at least 5, maybe more men who are expressing a strong interest.

Are you one of them. Please respond here if you are.

Current talk is about where to SAFELY meet so that we can brainstrom.
