Stopping Sexual Exploitation: a Program for Men is a non-judgmental program based on principles of social justice and personal transformation that’s designed to help men understand their behavior and promote their own decisions to not buy sex.
It is not about assigning blame.
It is about examining the factors that prevent men from living fully engaged lives.
Participants commit to a total of 10 weekly sessions at the same time and day each week.
The program consists of the following components:
Two individual 60-minute sessions before participation in the group.
