Samsn needs psychologists to help !

Survivors & Mates Support Network (SAMSN) is a not for profit organization that provides support services and advocacy for adult male victims of CSA  and their families.
SAMSN provides a number of support services.  These include: 
  • eight week support groups for male survivors which are facilitated by trained professionals.
  • training workshops for professionals around working with male survivors
  • 1/2 day information/support workshops for male survivors and their partners, families and other support people.
SAMSN is receiving a high volume of calls from all over NSW from men seeking specialized counselling from NSW VS approved therapists.
SAMSN is developing a referral list of appropriate counsellors to whom male survivors could be referred.  As a result SAMSN is seeking both male and female therapists who have a solid understanding of complex trauma, an in depth understanding of the issues commonly faced by male survivors of CSA, and those with experience working with men. 
 SAMSN is moving office to the Parramatta region in the next 3 months and will potentially be offering individual counselling from their premises. 
If you would like to discuss receiving referrals from SAMSN or are interested in offering counselling at SAMSN's new premises, can you make contact with Shane McNamara at

March Australian Women's Weekly features Philipa Thornton of

I often get calls from journalists and the media, usually wanting an immediate response to a topical current affair. 

Last October I met with Michael Sheather   Associate Editor of The Australian Women's Weekly. He was exploring the impact of infidelity and had surprisingly  frank interviews with people involved in ongoing affairs. He wanted my opinion and insights as an experienced psychological expert in the relationship field.  

At Www.Marriageworks.Com.Au we specialise in helping folk ready to heal from affairs. 

So if you want to know more on looking for the signs of cheating, you'll find it on p.76 of the March edition of The Australian Women's Weekly.        

You can't miss it - it's the one with the wonderful Dame Judy Dench on the cover !
