MEN IN RECOVERY – MONTHLY MEETINGS (poster)

I would like to spotlight ongoing monthly meetings for men who have experienced sexual abuse. To be held in Elgin they are facilitated by Relationship counsellor and founder of Men In Recovery, Stephen Linturn.

Stephen is a relationship counselling colleague of mine and his work in supporting, helping men who have been sexually abused is admirable. Sensitive, skilful and pragmatic, Stephen, an experienced therapist, offers valuable and badly needed help to men who are in recovery.

The next three meetings for men will be in Elgin as well, they are on Saturdays, January 13th and February 17th and April 21st, May 19th and June 16th, 9.30-12.30pm, price £18 per meeting with concessions on request.

Intended as a drop-in group it is hoped the group will run monthly. If you are interested, please contact Stephen on info@meninrecovery.org to book your place and for details about the venue . Men In Recovery is a registered Scottish Charity.

MEETING FOR MEN WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED SEXUAL ABUSE - a half day workshop (poster)

Men in Recovery is a charity based in Kinloss whose aim is to support men with a history of sexual abuse. Founded by Stephen Linturn, the organisation has moved from almost unknown to the acknowledged resource for the area through their recent activities and through providing well researched information on their website http://www.meninrecovery.org.

As part of their mission Men in Recovery offers workshops and trainings for practitioners and therapists as well as meetings and workshops for Men who have experienced sexual abuse. The training events in Elgin, Inverness and Aberdeen in 2017 have been very successful and sparked initiatives for further trainings and meetings amongst therapists.

In addition to the above mentioned monthly meetings of men in Elgin, Stephen Linturn is now offering a half day workshop in collaboration with 3rd Level Foundation in Aberdeen. The workshop will be on Saturday, 28th April, 2018, 1 - 4pm in central Aberdeen. The cost for the event is £18/concessions are available.
