Isolation and disconnection are at the core of a survivor’s experience of sexual violence. Connecting with others who have had similar experiences can help an individual build relationships and trust. The group experience has been found to be a powerful healing tool, whether the history of sexual assault or abuse occurred recently or in the past. This group is for adult men who have experienced sexual abuse as children. All healingSPACE groups are facilitated by state licensed, Master’s level professionals and are free of charge. A phone screening and intake are required prior to joining a group. It is important that the group be a good fit for both the new individual and the existing group. For more information about our support groups, please call 201-881-1733.
