The program is maintained by an experienced team of highly trained trauma clinicians. Since 2001 thru 2017, the WOR Facilitator Team has conducted 69 WORs throughout the US and Canada.
Weekend of Recovery (WOR) retreats provide complementary support for any male-identified individual – 18 or older – who is a survivor of sexual trauma as a child and/or as an adult. By engaging participants in creating an environment that supports safety needs for male-identified survivors, our program format seeks to acknowledge and honor the authentic diversities of attendees at each WOR (sexuality, gender, racial, ethnic, class, spirituality, etc.). Alumni of WOR retreats report the experience contributed to easing their suffering; to enabling higher functioning; to facilitating healthier relationships with friends, partners, children; to inspiring activism; and to diminishing the cycle of victimization.

inspire other survivors to move beyond mere survival. Through this
adventure, he aims to focus on what can be instead of what was,
all while raising funds to help facilitate incredible healing
opportunities for men who otherwise may not be able to afford it.
Testimonials“An experience that allows you to open your heart to the possibility that the past will not define my future. The supportive nature of the weekend allows freedom to express fears without worrying about the stigma of being a male survivor.”
