Dear friends of People Can Change,


Family, friends, supporters and clergy can now join together with Journey Into Manhood alumni and other SSA men to hear from psychotherapist David Matheson, co-creator of the life-changing Journey Into Manhood program, about the principles on which it is founded -- along with David's breakthrough work in "Gender Wholeness Theory."


Watch the video (see link below) to learn more. 


The next conference is June 16th in Los Angeles, California, which is being hosted by the LA SSA Circle of Men. On June 23rd in Salt Lake City, Utah, the workshops listed will be presented as part of an Evergreen Regional Conference.


Although these are not People Can Change programs, PCC is pleased to share this information with you as another great resource for those traveling this journey out of unwanted same-sex attractions, and those who love and support them.

CGW Growth


Presented by David Pruden, M.S.

For Family, Friends, and Clergy


Families, friends, and religious leaders of men with same-sex attraction (SSA) often find themselves bewildered and overwhelmed as they try to make sense of this challenging issue. Without a clear and accurate understanding of what their loved one or congregant is experiencing, they may be unable to provide meaningful support and often just make things worse. Come benefit from David Pruden's 18 years of experience counseling families and clergy on these perplexing issues. In this day-long workshop you will:

  • Receive a framework for understanding the biological, emotional, and developmental influences that underlie same-sex attraction and a model of how change occurs
  • Learn practical techniques for promoting a healing environment, overcoming communication barriers, and building stronger connections with SSA loved ones
  • Hear a personal story of healing and growth from an SSA individual or family member
  • Have the opportunity to gain insight, feel strengthened, and embrace new possibilities for personal growth  

Three or more family members may attend at a discounted price.


Clergy are invited to attend the first 2 hours of this workshop at no cost.
