Group Name: MaleSurvivor – Support for Men of Sexual Victimization
Description: MaleSurvivor provides critical resources to male survivors of sexual trauma and all their partners in recovery by building communities of hope, healing, and support. Most of the organizations that serve survivors of sexual abuse have been created by women for women. Because so few people know that large numbers of males are sexually abused, male survivors have been unseen, neglected and therefore underserved. Sadly, for males caught in this tragedy not of their own making, instead of needed understanding they confront profound misunderstanding in a culture that values invulnerability and denial of pain as essential qualities of manliness. Men simply are not allowed to admit that they have been sexually exploited and abused!
MaleSurvivor recognizes and respects the diversity of sexual abuse survivors and caregivers. This problem is not limited to people of any particular gender, race, religion, age, nationality, socioeconomic class, or sexual orientation. Through its informational programs and services, MaleSurvivor also helps the public and the media to recognize and understand males who have been sexually abused, and most important, promotes the actions we all can take to confront and fight the realities, and destroy the myths, of male sexual abuse.
Admission Requirements: Admission interview to determine appropriateness. Survivors of childhood sexual abuse share experiences of hope and recovery. This group is ongoing, open ended. Survivors attend as long as they need to attend.
