Campus Assault Resources and Education is a safe place for survivors of sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking to get support, consultation, and to have a confidential place to talk. You can get help without formally reporting an assault or requesting formal treatment. CARE also provides trauma-informed yoga to survivors and awareness and prevention education to the campus community. Custom workshops and trainings are offered on a variety of topics related to sexual violence.

Yoga as Healing for Survivors
The CARE Office believes in all forms of healing and this program will explore reconnection to the self through mind, body, and spirit. The impact that trauma has on the body’s physiology is far-reaching and CARE is committed to providing alternative forms of healing for survivors to support them in various stages of healing. Trauma-informed yoga provides survivors of sexual violence a means of becoming reacquainted with their bodies, helps them become grounded in the present moment, and allows them to explore the benefits of mindfulness.
For an interest form for the winter quarter 8-week yoga as healing series, please e-mail Assistant Director of CARE, Zabie Yamasaki at email@example.com.
