I live in Bradenton FL. That is on the south side of Tampa bay. I would be willing to drive to Tampa, St Pete or Sarsota for a men's survivor group if you know of one.

If not, I would be willing to help start a peer group. Please contact me thru this site.

Ken,
I live in Miami. I am not really aware of men's survivor groups around this area. However, there is an organization that has some events for survivors called Innermotion.org . They do have some all day workshops and various events which I find to be very helpful. They are based out of Fort Lauderdale but sometimes they do travel and put on performances. If you visit their website you can learn more about them.

Otherwise, I am not aware of other things, especially for males. I'm not sure where this thinking is going to take me, but I was thinking the other day,,, if I was an alcholic, there is a place to go. If I was a domestic violence victim, I would have a place to go. If I was a child in a need of a home, there would be a place to go. If I am a abuse survivor (be it male or female), I'm not sure where to go. Like I said, I'm not sure where I'm going with this thinking but it struck me pretty hard the other day.

For me, I do have a therpist which is helping me to deal through things in life. I use the online forums a lot.

Hope this helps a little.

Don

Ken, Mr. Don, and Matt:

I too am not able to find a survivor group where I live in Indiana. It is really disappointing. The best thing for us to do may be to start our own individual groups. You may find "A Circle of Men" by Bill Kauth to be a helpful book in this group formation process. Good luck!

mattandrew,
I live in Vero Beach, and am curious about finding a group, or even starting a group. But I feel somewhat new. I've attended Al-Anon groups for years, and I very much enjoy the setting, but I don't know of meetings right now. What have been your thoughts/findings lately?

I do have one lead, but I haven't followed it yet.

I got in touch with SIA (Survivors of Incest Anonymous), and there is a meeting in Winter Haven. I live in Vero Beach about 100 miles away, but I went to college near there and I know my way around. And considering it's only once a month, I'm willing to trek there. I contacted two people there, and if you want contact info let me know.

Found another contact. There's an SIA group in Ocala for men only. Contact is Shaun at (352) 687-3457. Only question is whether it is still active or not. The last time it was verified was 4/97.

Thanks for the info but Ocala is quite a trek for me. I think I may try to start a group after some surgery I am having in October. Want to drive to Bradenton??
