Weekend of Recovery (WOR) retreats provide complementary support for any male-identified individual – 18 or older – who is a survivor of sexual trauma as a child and/or as an adult.

By engaging participants in creating an environment that supports safety needs for male-identified survivors, our program format seeks to acknowledge and honor the authentic diversities of attendees at each WOR (sexuality, gender, racial, ethnic, class, spirituality, 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.

The program is maintained by an experienced team of highly trained trauma clinicians. Since 2001 thru 2017, the WOR Facilitator Team has conducted 69 WORs throughout the US and Canada.


REGISTRATION: Registration is not guaranteed. Screening for attendance on a Weekend of Recovery is required and will be conducted after a potential participant registers. The purpose of the screening interview is to help determine if a potential participant is ready to safely and productively participate in the weekend. If we determine a participant is not yet ready, we will suggest other activities he could engage in to prepare himself for participation in a future weekend.
