I want to encourage you for taking a first step today to learn more.  As a survivor of domestic violence, sexual assault and sexual abuse I know all to well how difficult the journey toward healing can be.  Stronger than Espresso was born out of my own survivor recovery story and I am passionate about helping you find tools along the way that can help you.

Stronger Women curriculum has been proven effective with survivors as a workbook that helps the healing process.  The participant guide  is divided into 5 Sections and 15 Chapters. Each Chapter has a specific topic and healing journey. Enjoy these short videos below as  short introductions to the content found in each Chapter from Founder and President, Dr. Brooke Jones.  

There are also downloadable flyers for several of our most requested topics: Self Esteem, How to Set Boundaries, Healthy Relationships, Coping Behaviors, How to Set Goals, Domestic violence signs.

Stronger Women workbooks can be purchased individually and used on their own, or you can join a healing group led by one of our trained facilitators.  When survivors have an opportunity to feel seen, heard and understood, their experiences can give way to the healing process.  To find a group. 

We conduct new facilitator training quarterly to meet the demand of requests to start new groups and add new locations. If you don't see a group in your area contact us to see how we can find a local partner to launch a new site location.
