It's inspiring to participate in a
conference where
acknowledging  the impact of
trauma on men's lives and
pursuing a complex
understanding of men's behaviors
are accepted as the foundations
of the work rather than being
considered re voluntary ideas!

Our Seventh Annual It Happens to Boys was a huge success.                 
Read what some of our speakers had to say
"The Seventh Annual It Happens to
Boys Conference was truly
exceptional. I applaud Carol and
her staff for sponsoring such an
important conference on a very
sensitive topic with such
compassion and professionalism.
The choice of speakers as well as
the topics filled the two days with
great clinical techniques for
helping victims. As a presenter I
was honored to be invited and I
soon realized that the attendees
quickly became consumers of all
that was offered. Their
appreciation for the quality and
genuineness of the conference
was obvious to everyone. It was a
great two days".
Robert J. Ackerman

This conference features a line-up
of leading clinicians, educators,
authors, and advocates. It
sensitively explores childhood
sexual abuse and offers a clear
path to help, healing, and hope. A
highlight is the Courageous
Healers panel, a group of
recovering men sharing their
experience, strength, and hope.
This conference is a homerun.  
Jerry Moe, Director of the Children’
s Program at The Betty Ford Center

"It Happens to Boys" is an inspiring and
empowering conference for professionals,
survivors and allies.  Participants are immediately
assisted to feel welcomed into this community of
courageous healers and survivors, and given a
number of tools and insights to use in the
recovery process from a number of different
perspectives.  The positive emphasis of all the
speakers on offering hope, compassion and
support was a strong point of this two day
gathering.  Participants also had the opportunity
throughout the conference to experience
different healing modalities which led to the
possibility for personal growth and community
building. Another strong point of the conference
as well was hearing from a panel of courageous
male survivors about what has helped them in
their healing journeys.
