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.

On this weekend, all of the couples were able to open and honest in the wonderful environment the staff created for us. This weekend showed us some wonderful techniques to allow us to better communicate and ensure that my thoughts and feelings are heard. We were able to easily transition these wonderful practices into our everyday lives. It wasn’t any sort of quick fix, and it really showed us that if we put the work into it our relationship and communication could be unshakable.
