Our 14th International Conference is scheduled to take place October 31 - November 2, 2014, at the Newark Airport Marriott Hotel, located in Newark, New Jersey. The conference theme will be, Evolution: From Hurting to Healing. The Institute on Violence, Abuse and Trauma (IVAT) is serving as sponsor of CEs for the conference.
About the MaleSurvivor Conference:
- Our conference is the largest, and most established conference in the world with a primary focus on male sexual victimization. Our first professional conference on male sexual victimization was held in Minneapolis in October of 1988.
- Since that time, MaleSurvivor has held 13 conferences, and has become the premier international professional conference on the topic. At the last conference in 2012, over 350 attendees from 20 countries came together to share their knowledge and show their dedication to the work of healing survivors heal.
- MaleSurvivor conferences are special because they bring together professionals across many disciplines (psychology, social work, law enforcement, and others) with survivors and their partners in recovery to collaborate and connect with one another.
The 2014 conference will have eight emphases:
- International and national work with refugees, the trafficked, prisoners of war, and victims services
- Sexual abuse within institutions- educational, religious, athletic, military, child welfare, health care, criminal justice organizations, family structures and dynamics of abuse.
- Psychotherapeutic and expressive arts approaches to healing
- Personal journeys of healing
- Managing substance abuse and self-medication
- Fatherhood as a healing experience, a challenge, and an opportunity for growth
- Partners of survivors
- Creative inclusion & support of partners
