DAHMW creates virtual support group

Tags:

For the first time ever, male survivors of domestic abuse will now be offered a peer led, 12-week support group online, making support available from the comforts of home.

Since 2000 the Domestic Abuse Helpline for Men and Women (DAHMW) has been offering support services to abuse survivors through its nationally available toll-free helpline. This year DAHMW will offer a virtual support group to male victims of abusive women. Participants will use virtual cameras to attend online meeting groups at a given time every week for 12 weeks.

“Over the years we have received numerous requests for this type of service from our male helpline callers,” said Jan Brown director and founder of DAHMW. “We are thrilled to be one of the first to offer this vital and needed service to male survivors of domestic abuse.”

This support group will give participants an opportunity to understand the effects of abuse on themselves and their children, explore what healthy intimate relationships look like, and help them to achieve personal growth in all areas of their life.

Currently the virtual support group is designed for male victims who have been in an abusive relationship with a female partner. To participate in the online support group, victims must be removed from the abusive partner for at least a month. Participants must have access to a computer and high-speed Internet service. DAHMW will supply the camera.

To find out more about this program, please contact DAHMW via email at dahmwagency@gmail.com or call 207.683.5758.
