About the event:

The past years have seen great positive change for people in recovery from childhood trauma, and for males in particular. No longer forced to suffer alone, survivors and professionals continue to develop resources and support systems that move the recovery process forward.

This weekend is for adult male survivors of child sexual abuse and other sexual trauma. The goal is to offer a recovery experience in a safe, powerful environment of shared healing. The outstanding venue is perfectly situated alongside a stunning beach in North Devon on the South West coast alongside the roaring Atlantic waves.

The weekend will provide a variety of healing activities: sharing of stories, writing exercises, anger work andother emotional expression, group discussion, shared creativity, relaxation and even fun in a safe, nurturing environment.

This event is for men actively engaged in recovery work and is not substitute for therapy. A letter of recommendation from a therapist/counsellor must accompany registration, however depending on where you are on your recovery journey this may not be necessary although it is preferable.

The registration deadline is Thursday 18th April. Spaces are limited and we predict that they will go quickly, so please register early.

Considerable attention has been paid to creating a safe nurturing environment respectful of participants’ needs. The weekend focuses on the reality of recovery as revealed by male survivors.

Led by Mike Lew, M.Ed. and Thom Harrigan, L.I.C.S.W. of The Next Step Counselling in Northampton, MA. USA

Mike is the highly acclaimed author of “Victims No Longer: The Classic Guide for Men Recovering from Sexual Child Abuse“, and “Leaping Upon the Mountains: Men proclaiming Victory over Sexual Child Abuse“.

Thom leads groups for male survivors and works extensively with survivors of clergy abuse.

7pm Friday dinner through to Sunday lunch 2pm. Full board and workshop £250, although some discounted rates may be available (see below).

Transport will be provided between Barnstaple Train Station and the venue.

Participants from outside the UK will be warmly welcomed.
