For Professionals

Several years ago, we began asking our program participants how they had heard about Victories. What they told us confirmed something we had long believed: that the overwhelming majority had come to us through the referrals of counselors, therapists, and other practitioners of the healing arts. These professionals have told us that they consider our model clinically sound, that it can have a real and positive impact on their male clients, and that it frequently helps those clients make accelerated progress in individual, couples, and family treatment.

As a way to acknowledge referring professionals and to encourage dialogue about men’s issues, we have created this “professionals only” section of our website. Among its features are:

  • Information about our programs, including their clinical foundations, their processes, their safety, their leadership, and the measures we take to ensure effective training and ethical behavior.
  • Opportunities for professionals to be listed in our online directory of counselors, to register for high-quality low-cost continuing education, and to make a presentation as part of our Victories Forum series of workshops.
  • Publications, including our own program documentation and access to recent scholarly articles on men’s issues.

Talking about my feelings is not something I wanted to ever do in private, let alone with strangers. However, I allowed myself to open up for the first time in years, and I made myself vulnerable. I got to see a side of myself that had been dormant for over a decade. Besides the incredible impact this had on me personally, it was also fulfilling to be part of a group in which I could partake in helping others. The experience helped me resolve to live more fully and helped me to have more appreciation for what I have in my life. I’m grateful that I took the plunge.
