Workshops

Identity

Reprogram your vision of self and learn to love who you are. Identify what you like

and dislike about yourself. Change the things you can and accept what you cannot.

It is important to know who you are and what you stand for. STUCK knows that when people are “just trying to survive” it's difficult to focus on anything other than staying safe. Survivors are often identified by their environment, or by whoever they have had to become to get their needs met, or be accepted. Every individual should have the right to show up as their authentic self without fear of judgment or being denied services.  As a survivors are just as human as the next person and should be treated with dignity and respect despite where you have been or what you are going through.

Self-Care

Identify distractions & obstructive behaviors, set goals,

boundaries, and create a self-care routine.

It can be hard to care for yourself when you are focused on surviving. Self care is often staying safe, keeping the people in your life happy, making sure you have food and a place to sleep. We easily take care of another or give great advice, but taking care of self somehow gets pushed to the side. Understand that nothing is fully taken care of if you are not taking care of yourself first. And you should not feel bad or guilty doing so. Your mental, emotional, and physical health, happiness, and safety should come first in all situations.


Relationships

 Re-examine relationships, rebuild the ones that are worth saving,

and replace the ones that need to be terminated.

 

Once you embrace who you are, and start putting yourself first; your relationships will change. Not just intimate relationships, but all relationships professional and personal. People may not take your transition well.  Make sure that when you are saying yes to someone that you aren't sacrificing yourself in any negative way.  You should not have to risk your safety, tolerate disrespect, or be uncomfortable, to be loved or accepted by someone else. Never be afraid to walk away from a relationship where you're not respected. You have to teach people how to treat the new you. 

 

Finances/Education

Strategize to secure legitimate financial security.

You may need to return to school or obtain a second job.

 

One source of income is typically just not enough. There are some people that feel they need to break law, rules, or guidelines to make ends meet. Others may depend financially on their partner, family support, or government assistance. Explore reliable and legitimate ways to increase your source of income. One that is consistent and will not cost you your freedom, or put you in an unsafe situation. You may need to return to school and higher your education, learn a trade, or obtain a second job. Plan ahead for the hard times because they will come. Paying off old debts, building your credit score, and starting a savings account are the first steps to financial freedom. 

Community/Environment

Visualize where and how you’d prefer to live. Identify ways

to create positive changes in your community. 

With a consistent income you have the option to establish safe housing. You can create the living environment of your dreams. You should in some way contribute to rebuilding your community, by supporting other survivors and organizations that you believe in along your journey.

Change may not happen overnight, but trust the process because it will happen.
