About Weekends of Recovery
Weekend of Recovery (WOR) Retreats provide complementary support for any male – 18 or older – who is a survivor of sexual trauma as a child and/or as an adult. The WOR healing retreat is an adjunctive resource, not a replacement for Therapy. By engaging participants in creating an environment that supports safety needs for male survivors, our program format seeks to acknowledge and honor the authentic diversities of attendees at each WOR (racial, ethnic, class, spirituality, sexuality, gender, etc.). Alumni of WOR retreats report the experience contributed to easing their suffering; to enabling higher functioning; to facilitating healthier relationships with friends, partners, children; to inspiring activism; and to diminishing the cycle of victimization.
