Pineapple Support launches racial trauma-focused support group for adult industry performers of color

Adult industry mental health organization Pineapple Support is offering a free 6 week drop-in support group called “Healing from Race-Based Traumatic Stress”. The group meets on Wednesdays at 5pm Pacific/8pm Eastern time starting on August 12, 2020.

This 6-week support group will address the damages caused by racial trauma due to exposure from institutional racism, discrimination, harassment, community violence and related news/social media.

Jamila Dawson will lead the discussion of the impact of this traumatic stress on behaviour, relationships, coping and parenting as well as strategies that promote self-regulation, safety, sense of empowerment, self-worth, self-determination and emotional confidence of Black Americans.

To sign up for the support group, or for more information on available services, please visit the Pineapple Support website.
