I'm from WA and just recently I called around for group therapy sessions for rape survivors/victims, i was on the phone for 4 hrs and called every listing i could find + the ones that were given to me by the groups I called only to find out that there are currently no group therapy groups for adult rape survivors in WA unless you are victim of incest or priest abuse.

SARC were the first place I called and they were the only ones that HAD a group therapy however that is currently suspended indefinitely due to there operations being under review.

Though not offering a group there is a new organisation called Reclaiming Voices (0404 333 409 or reclaimingvoiceswa@aapt.net.au) whom run workshops and are looking at setting up group therapy etc that were one of the most helpful and understanding of everyone I called, they are also looking at lobbying for further funding and resources. Reclaiming Voices is run by volunteers so if you have something you want to contribute then get in contact with them :)

I found the fact that there are no group therapy/support groups out there for stranger and non-stranger adult rape quite disturbing, I was calling on be-half of a friend of mine and just couldn't imagine what she would have been feeling had it been she that was calling round, it was pretty dis-heartening for me to have to go back to her with the news that there wasn't anything around but hopefully that will change in the future.
