Here are some helpful talking points about the benefits of a weekend:
Enhance connections with your loved ones
Build deep, meaningful friendships
Receive support and acceptance
Feel confident, engaged, and authentic
Learn with the support of other men
Experience the safety of vulnerability and confidentiality
Participant Support Meeting
We understand that there are many concerns for a man and how he will “change” on the weekend. While our primary concern is the participant, we also offer some assistance for their friends and family.
When a man attends the BreakThrough or Wisdom Years Weekend, a special meeting is held for significant others/spouses, close family, and friends. This meeting will give a man’s circle of support information about what to expect when he returns. The weekend participant is asked to share contact info of someone they would like to invite to this meeting.
Talk to your Loved Ones
Talking to a man about attending Victories can be a daunting task. He may be curious, or he may be resistant. Some men register right away, some take years to attend. We encourage you to talk to your loved one about the benefits of a weekend program with other men.
I was on the verge of losing my marriage and family before the weekend. The weekend opened my eyes (and heart) to healing the cause of my self-destroying shame. The weekend was a new beginning for me showing my wife and family that I could be open and honest and be the man they always thought I was.
