Our group meets Thursday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. There are three to eight group members, all of whom are dealing with their history of sexual abuse and/or sexual assault. The focus of the group is to help the participants identify, confront and heal the wounds they carry related to their traumatic history. Other goals include developing an understanding of the universal themes experienced by male survivors, repairing the ability to develop and maintain trusting relationships, learning to give and receive emotional support, all while reducing isolation and shame.
