What an intense set of experiences. I hope that you have been able to take gentle care of yourself for the rest of the day.

Of course, I support whatever decision you make about joining the group. But, I did want to share that it struck me that having a female T leading the gp might be a nice addition to your individual work with a male T. CSA has a complex relationship with one's self image as a woman and I wonder if a female T might be able to help you explore that in a new way.

Also, and maybe you want to ask your T about this, but I suspect that he thinks you are ready to do this painful work, with the ugly words, the new people, etc.

Could you call up the gp leader again and tell her abt your reaction to the meeting. Perhaps she has some helpful input abt whether it makes sense to join the gp.

Could you give yourself a trial period? Like say, attend 6 sessions and then decide? Groups are not for everyone. But, some people have found them to be invaluable. Good luck. Keep us posted.

Best,
EE
