There will be space for up to 28 men on this weekend. *Please be aware that Sequoia Retreat Center is not wheelchair-accessible, however all of our other sites used for Weekends of Recovery are wheelchair accessible. "Before attending the WoR, I was on a crash course with disaster. My marriage and family were bearing the weight of my abuse! Processing the experience makes me thankful the facilitators care so much! I felt like they guided me personally off the tracks of destruction! The deep dark hole of depression and self loathing have very little power over me now! Get to the next WoR, you'll leave the past where it belongs!"--Hope Springs alumnus, October, 2013 Registration Costs Fees start at $695 for early registration. Registration includes the costs of the facilitated Weekend of Recovery program, with our 8 skilled facilitators from the MaleSurvivor Weekend of Recovery Facilitator Team, plus lodging, 7 meals, and snacks. Bottled water, juices, tea and coffee will be available throughout the weekend. Scholarships are available on a limited basis to help offset registration costs. If you are seeking financial assistance to attend the Weekend, the first thing to do is consider your health insurance plan. Some of the larger carriers do provide reimbursement for specific interventions such as the Weekend of Recovery if you ask. Call the utilization management office of your insurance company and be sure to stress the weekend is facilitated by licensed mental health clinicians.But that's just the start of an exciting 2014!    MaleSurvivor has a full slate of Weekends, Trainings, and other events planned for 2014!

Prosecutors, Victim Advocates and Law Enforcement fill very specific and integral roles in the criminal justice system. The differences in these roles can often times place these dedicated professionals at odds with each other.

Effective communication and collaboration among and between the various groups the crime victim encounters is critical to that victim’s journey through the judicial process. Meeting Challenges in Prosecution and Victim Advocacy provides presentations and discussion forums to foster better understanding and communication among prosecutors, victim advocates and other professionals who regularly work with victims of violent crime. Join us as we discuss:

Men & Healing combines conceptual training about the range of men's responses to unwanted or abusive sexual experiences with core intervention skills and strategies. The two-day training is designed to empower frontline workers to actively intervene with men who have had traumatic sexual experiences, whether they initially disclose histories of sexual abuse or present with other, seemingly unrelated issues. This combination of theory and practice with an emphasis on experiential approaches addresses many of the practical and clinical concerns of frontline professionals and volunteers.
