MaleSurvivor Weekends of Recovery



Starting this year, we are eliminating early registration discounts for the Weekends of Recovery.

Along with this change, registration for all weekends will open 4 months ahead, and will close 1 month before the weekend begins. In the past, we have accepted late registrations, however starting in 2016, we will no longer be able to accept such late registrations. We must give our staff adequate time to prepare to be at the weekend, and it is necessary for them to know one month ahead about their participation. Hopefully, this will also give each of you that full month to prepare emotionally as well.

We have reduced the number of Level One weekends to 3 this year instead of 4; so we encourage you to register early to save your space.

MaleSurvivor has been conducting 3-Day Weekends of Recovery (WOR's) throughout the US & Canada since 2001. Facilitated by a team of trained therapists and educators who adhere to the highest ethical standards of their clinical professions, these healing weekends provide adjunctive support for any male - 18 or older - who has been sexually victimized as a child and/or as an adult. Participants are engaged in creating an environment that provides safety for the wide range of diversity amongst attendees at each weekend.

What Can You Expect?

  • During a weekend, you'll have the opportunity to learn some new skills that can help you feel safer and more grounded as you continue to work on your recovery.
  • You'll also have a chance to tell the story of the abuse done to you with safety and the support you've always deserved.
  • You'll have a chance to take steps to remove some of the blocks that may be in your way of making additional progress.
  • And you'll be joining a community of men, over 1200 at present, who also have benefitted from participating in a weekend, and discover how to build your support network once you go home
