Group Name: Women’s College Hospital – Women Recovering from Abuse Program (WRAP)

Description: Women’s College Hospital is established in women’s health – our remarkable history goes back more than a century in Ontario. We have gone through many changes in the past several years – the most recent being regaining our independent governance on April 1, 2006. This is a very exciting time for us, as we explore new and better ways to provide care to women and their families throughout every phase of their lives. Women’s College Hospital is a community dedicated to achieving leadership in women’s health in an ambulatory care setting.

The Women Recovering from Abuse Program (WRAP) is an intensive group therapy program with accompanying individual therapy for women who have experienced physical, emotional, sexual abuse and/or neglect in childhood (0-18 years old). WRAP is part of the Trauma Therapy Program. There is a phone intake process before entering the program. Women who are interested in the program may be asked about safety (e.g. living environment, relationships), previous therapy experience and self-care strategies. She will then meet with a member of the clinical team for an in-person psychosocial assessment to determine whether WRAP would be beneficial. WRAP is best suited to women who can benefit from a time-limited program and who are experiencing any of the following symptoms related to trauma:

  • Anxiety
  • Numbing
  • Problems with self-esteem
  • Difficulties with relationships
  • Flashbacks
  • Feelings of guilt and shame
  • Depression
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Dissociation
  • Feelings of isolation or alienation
