Welcome to Survivors & Mates Support Network
SAMSN conducts eight-week groups for men who are survivors of child sexual abuse. The groups cover a series of topics that help guide participants through part of their recovery journey. Each week, participants receive a reading to provide them with information and to help them focus on the following week’s topic.
This collection of audio readings is identical to the written material handed out in the groups. They are available for men who would prefer to listen to the readings. It is strongly recommended that these readings are listened to in the order, and at the stage of the group that they relate to.
Each weekly reading was recorded by a participant of SAMSN, that is a man who has completed at least one eight-week group. The sound engineer who created the recordings is also a SAMSN participant.
These readings have been written specifically for SAMSN. We request that participants do not forward our readings to people outside of the group and that copyright is respected.
