What is CRIPHASE?
Resource and Intervention Center for Men Sexually Abused during their Childhood is an organization with non lucrative goals helping men who were victims of traumas and who want to free themselves of that heavy load in order to live a happier life.
CRIPHASE is managed by men who were sexually abused during their childhood for men who were sexually abused in their childhood. Indeed, the Board of Directors is composed of at least three men that have been sexually abused in their childhood and that have completed PHASE I out of a total of seven. The remainder of the Board of Directors is composed of one representative of our therapists, the general manager and other members of the community that have a special interest in this cause. Therefore, the Board really understands the difficulties and the specific needs of men who call upon the services of the Center.
Our services are offered in Montreal. However, we accept all men, without regard to their place of residence. If you can come to the Center, you are welcome. If we cannot help you, we will direct you towards resources suitable to your needs.
Phase groups – for men sexually abused in their childhood – were born in 1996, with the specific aim of helping men who wished to free themselves of the aftermaths of the sexual abuse they suffered during their youth.
During the spring of 1997, a team of volunteers founded CRIPHASE after deploring the lack of resources and the deficiencies of the services already offered.
To meet the incessantly increasing need of help and support from men who were sexually abused in their childhood and who are trying to improve their personal and social well-being.
CRIPHASE offers the following PHASE support groups (for men sexually abused in their childhood):
Furthermore, some punctual activities, such as thematic evenings, conferences, etc., are offered from time to time.
