Join us at the 2nd Annual Whiskey in a Teacup Fundraiser in Support of Little Warriors
Little Warriors is a national, charitable organization focused on the awareness, prevention and treatment of child sexual abuse.
Jen and Grace, two ladies who are very passionate about supporting and protecting children, have joined together to gather Industry and friends to help raise funds and awareness for Little Warriors! The last two years have been extremely challenging for our children, there have been no sports or no school (sometimes the only safe haven) and many kids were forced to be home with their abusers day in and out. Child Sexual abuse is something that has always existed (we are working to change that). In the last two years the reports and numbers have jumped three fold and continue to rise, as the internet has exploded with demand for Child Sexual Abuse materials.
About Little Warriors
The Little Warriors Be Brave Ranch located east of Edmonton Alberta is a specialized, intensive, trauma-informed, evidence-based treatment centre solely focused on helping children from across Canada who have been sexually abused, as well as their families.
Our program is for children and adolescents ages 8-17 and is a one-year combined onsite and outpatient program designed with significant input from many leading academic and clinical experts who specialize in child sexual abuse and trauma. Participants receive over 10 different types of therapy including TF-CBT (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavioural Therapy) Informed Interventions, Expressive Therapies (Art, Psychodrama, etc.), Somatic Therapeutic Interventions, Indigenous Elder Teachings, Animal-Assisted Therapy, EMDR, Music Therapy, Group Therapy, Family Therapy, and Individual Therapy.
Published results confirm the success of the Be Brave Ranch treatment program including highly significant reductions in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and anxiety. Additionally, the intensive and comprehensive treatment program significantly improves self-esteem, cognitive abilities and resiliency.
You can take a virtual tour of the Be Brave Ranch here. For more information about Little Warriors and the additional programs offered such as a free Prevent It! workshop to educate adults to help prevent and respond to child sexual abuse, visit the Little Warriors website at littlewarriors.ca.
