Frequently Asked Questions

Who is the program right for?
SheHerdPower is not a substitute for professional treatment and may not be appropriate for everyone. Due to the nature of the program, SheHerdPower is limited in its capacity to adequately support survivors experiencing severe trauma symptoms. Additionally, participants should be aware that the experiential exercises during the weekend might elicit intense emotional reactions. For some survivors, it may be important to receive therapy or other forms of treatment prior to participating in a SheHerdPower weekend.
SheHerdPower currently only offers programs to adults over the age of 18.
How do I apply?
Due to our limited schedule and strong interest, the program is currently by referral through organizations already known to SheHerdPower. Please see our resources page for a list of referral organizations.
