Feedback from recent MaleSurvivor Trainings:

"I liked the fact that the workshop was focused on methods and was very intercultural. For instance the do's and dont's of working with a victim. In addition, the workshop gave a very dignified and respectful overview of male survivors based on good facts and stats."

"I don't know what my favourite or least favourite part of the workshop was. However, I would like to say that I came away more enlightened about the topic of male survivors. I work with males who are on parole and I didn't make the connection that many of them are likely survivors, some who haven't had the opportunity to begin addressing this issue."

"I have been waiting for this topic to be discussed at length for some time. I have been taking female based tools and adapting them to the sexually abused males who are treated in my clinic. I appreciated the strength and honesty of the presenter, but also was grateful for his dedication to providing specific support for male sexual abuse survivors which included providing specific education to mental health providers."

If you would like to bring any of these trainings, our Dare to Dream awareness program, or a Weekend of Recovery to your community. Our trainings can be custom tailored to fit the needs of any audience, and we are happy to discuss creating specific content for your group.
