6. Title IX Compliance Training for New Graduate Students
7 The UCLA CARE Program is excited to announce a new support service for survivors of sexual assault: Yoga as Healing. The impact trauma has on the body’s physiology is far-reaching, as such it is essential to incorporate culturally relevant practices that provide alternative forms of healing for our students. Providing trauma-informed yoga as a support service to survivors offers a different entry point, helps survivors reconnect to their bodies, and empowers them to access additional resources when they are ready, including: reporting options, medical services, and counseling. Survivors have also shared that the yoga program increased their confidence and self-esteem, allowed them to develop a strong sense of community, and helped them incorporate self-care strategies into their lives.
