Afternoons of Healing - READ MORE
Join us as we celebrate the resilience of the human spirit and share our journey of recovery through art, music, and our stories of healing. Whether you have experienced sexual abuse or assault in your family, your faith community, your school, the military, your workplace, or elsewhere, we welcome you and those who support you. This afternoon will provide a space for survivors of all genders to join together in lifting the veil of secrecy and shame. By bringing the issues of sexual abuse and assault out from the shadows, we hope to create an opening for increased awareness and recognition that healing is possible.
A group of trauma psychologists are leading a team to help alleviate psychiatric distress in gay, bi and trans males who have been sexually abused or assaulted. In collaboration with MenHealing these clinicians have recruited and trained 20 men who have experienced sexual victimization to deliver evidence-based online mental health interventions. Jim Struve has been an advisor to the project and a number of the Weekends of Recovery alumni are participating as peer leaders!
