Day of Healing for Male Survivors: Registration Open

MenHealing's logo with BARCC's logo

Male survivors do not always know where to reach out to for support in their healing journeys. BARCC is here to support male survivors, and we’re excited to team up with MenHealing to offer a powerful experience: Days of Recovery—coming to Waltham on June 8 and Boston on June 9.

These free one-day healing eventsare co-facilitated by expert BARCC clinical staff and MenHealing clinicians. Days of Recovery are designed to help male survivors develop a conscious relationship with difficult emotions that many sexual trauma survivors experience.

Both days feature the same content. Registration is open to all male survivors of sexual violence (experienced in childhood and/or adulthood)—including cisgender and transgender men—age 18 and older in Massachusetts.

Days of Recovery

Throughout the day, participants can expect to learn or use the following:

  • Mindfulness skills
  • Body awareness and empowerment
  • Experiential activities
  • Small- and large-group processing

If you’re a male survivor looking for a deeper connection to yourself and other male survivors, this free day of healing is for you. Please help us spread the word by sharing with your networks and on social media. If you have any questions, please e-mail .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

This project was partially supported by the Massachusetts Office for Victim Assistance through a Victims of Crime Act of 1984 (VOCA) grant from the Office for Victims of Crime, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice. Additional support comes from contributions to BARCC and MenHealing.
