SAMSN (Survivors and Mates Support Network) is committed to supporting men who were sexually abused when they were children or teenagers. As part of this commitment, SAMSN conducts workshops to support the partners, family members and friends of men recovering from abuse. These workshops are designed to support the supporters.
- “My partner is struggling with memories of being abused as a child. How can I help him?”
- “An old friend has just told me he was sexually abused when he was a child. What should I say to him?”
- “I think my brother was abused when he was kid. Can I ask him if he was?”
- “I have just found out my son has been sexually abused. What should I do?”
These SAMSN workshops will provide answers to these difficult questions and assist supporters to have confidence in responding to the needs of male survivors. The workshops are interactive with time to make comments and ask questions.
SAMSN Supporters Workshops are FREE to all attendees.
