August 18-20, 2023. We plan to be in-person at Kirkridge, however, we will be responsive to community needs related to COVID-19 and make a decision closer to the date. If in person, we do plan on practicing social distancing and mask wearing. The leaders are asking that all participants be fully vaccinated. Double and limited single rooms are available.
This weekend workshop is for non-offending adult male survivors of sexual child abuse, rape, physical violence, emotional abuse and/or neglect. Our goal is to offer a safe, encouraging environment of healing. The weekend will provide a variety of healing activities, including the sharing of stories, writing exercises, anger work and other emotional expressions, small group discussion, relaxation and yes, even fun.
This event is for men who are actively engaged in recovery work; it is not a substitute for therapy. A letter of recommendation from a therapist must accompany the registration form/deposit. The registration deadline for this event is August 4th, 2023.
Led by Mike Lew and Thom Harrigan of the Next Step Counseling in Florence MA. Mike is the author of Victims No Longer: The Classic Guide for Men Recovering from Sexual Child Abuse. Thom leads groups for male survivors and has worked extensively in this field.
