Media Outreach Activities
Facilitator Team member, Sharon Imperato, and WOR Alumnus, Jim Holland were featured during a newscast for Boston Neighborhood Network News. This news interview was part of our effort to expand awareness about male survivors and to promote the up-coming Day of Recovery events in Massachusetts.
Here's a link to the BNN Segment.
Join MenHealing and the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center (BARCC) for a Facebook Live Q&A on healing for male survivors of sexual trauma. Sharon Imperato and Jim Struve (members of the WOR/DOR Facilitator Team) will talk about what survivors can expect at two upcoming Days of Recovery (happening in June in Massachusetts), common barriers to healing, and more. Tune in a little after 3 p.m. (EDT) on Friday, May 17, on the BARCC Facebook Page Question you would like us to address can be submitted in advance by e-mail to: email@example.com.
