Those who are interested in a direct service role and currently have or are pursuing a masters degree in counseling, social work, or a related field can volunteer as a Group Facilitator, gaining direct client contact through facilitating psychoeducational and support groups.
Of course, working directly with survivors isn't for everyone.
