A sample Self-Care kit given to survivors of domestic violence.
Due to the high levels of stress and trauma that many survivors of domestic violence face, our advocates support and encourage participants to incorporate self-care techniques into their daily lives. Survivors of abuse are often told they are undeserving and have had very few opportunities to take care of themselves and their children in ways they deserve. There are many useful materials that support survivors to practice self-care. Here is a list of supplies that can be collected and assembled into self-care kits for our advocates to give to participants:
Essential oils for aromatherapy
Scented candles or incense
Yoga, zumba, or dance passes or DVDs
Fidget rings or tactile jewelry
Coloring books and supplies
Painting canvas and paints
Crochet hooks/Knitting needles and yarn
Other craft supplies
Spa giftcards or kits
