What's New? Update – February 23, 2005

Great News! I just heard from Bob Balfour, the organiser ("organizer" for Americans) of the June and July workshops in England, that he received a generous financial gift from an anonymous donor. This gift allows us to reduce (yes, I said reduce) the price of the two survivor workshops (Victims No Longer and Women Together) from £ 325 to £ 225. This price includes the workshop fee plus room and board in one of the most beautiful and idyllic spots in the UK - The Lake District. See the Events page for more details and registration information. Bob and I are thrilled that this generosity has made the event more available to survivors. Thank you, A.D. (Anonymous Donor).


On Friday, March 18, 2005 I will be doing an afternoon workshop for GLBTQ (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, and questioning) youth who have experienced sexual abuse. This workshop is part of the 12th Annual Conference of True Colors (Sexual Minority Youth and Family Services of Connecticut). The Conference will be held on March 18-19 on the campus of Central Connecticut State College in New Britain. See the Events page for more information about the Conference and True Colors.[Note: The Conference organizer asked me to let professionals know that they can get Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for attending: up to 12 units for the full conference.]


I will also be doing a 4 1/2 hour professional training on the sexual victimization of males at a "Super Conference" in Oklahoma City in October. For more information, see the Events page.


Clearly, lots of good things are happening for survivors and their allies. There is much still to be done, but we are on our way. Take care of yourself: we need you.
