Mr. Christopher M Anderson

Term:

Since Mar 2012

Profile:

Christopher Anderson is the Executive Director of MaleSurvivor. A passionate advocate for the rights of survivors of sexual abuse, Chris joined the organization in 2007 after coming to understand the extent to which the sexual abuse he suffered as a child profoundly affected his life. He now speaks publicly about his own experiences as a survivor of sexual abuse, how MaleSurvivor helped him progress in his own healing, and about the needs of survivors in general. In 2007, he wrote and co-presented, “Ten Things Every Therapist Should Know About Survivors” at MaleSurvivor’s International Conference with Ken Followell. Chris has also attended 3 Weekends of Recovery and was one of the 200+ survivors who took part in the historic Oprah Winfrey Show special episodes highlighting the truth of Male Sexual Abuse and it’s effect that aired in November 2010. Chris serves on the MaleSurvivor International Conference Planning Committee, Communications Committee, and is chair of the Web Oversight Committee. A member of Local One, IATSE, Chris worked as a stagehand on and off Broadway until 2011. He currently lives in New York City with his wife, Jane. Chris graduated in 1996 from St. John’s College in Annapolis, MD with a BA in Liberal Arts.

Leadership Statement:

According to the Centers for Disease Control over 25 million males in the US will experience some form of sexual victimization in their lifetime. Approximately 1 in 4 males will experience a trauma that dramatically increases the likelihood they will experience depression, anxiety, substance abuse, interpersonal dysfunction, and suicide. However, when men are empowered to talk about the abuse and trauma they experienced in a supportive environment, in the company of other survivors, it is possible for them to make remarkable progress in overcoming these challenges. For over 20 years, MaleSurvivor has been a national leader in the effort to raise awareness of the sexual victimization of men and boys, and to develop resources to assist survivors and access the tools they need to be able to do the hard work of healing. MaleSurvivor's signature program, the Weekends of Recovery, began in 2001 with the goal of creating a trauma­-informed healing resource specifically designed to help male survivors of sexual violence. At each retreat, survivors participate in small and large group exercises designed to empower the men to share the stories of the traumas they have endured. For many, it is the first time in their lives these secrets have been shared. Weekends also introduce practical self-­care skills for men to use when they return home that assist In their ongoing healing. A team of 18 licensed Mental Health professionals from across North America donate over 10,000 hours annually to make the Weekends happen. Each team member has at least five years of clinical experience working with male survivors; on average, team members have over 15 years experience. They are also some of the country's leading psychotherapists and social workers in this area. Without their sacrifice, weekends could not be affordable to operate or to attend. However, even with the tremendous sacrifices

Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
No
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Yes
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Yes
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Yes
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Yes

This section is not a requirement for any of the Exchange participation levels - Bronze, Silver, or Gold. Instead, it is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff.

Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).

Program: Weekends of Recovery (GuideStar Exchange,

February 2015)

Budget:
$169,000
Category:
Victims
Population Served:
Male Adults
Crime/Abuse Victims
Other Minorities

Program Description:

The Weekends of Recovery were begun in 2001 by MaleSurvivor as an additional service to our members to help them make further progress in their recovery. The weekends were designed to assist any adult survivor who was seeking further support in his recovery by being in the company of other male survivors. In addition, the weekends were designed to introduce additional tools men could use when they returned home to assist in making further headway in their recovery. It was felt from the beginning that the weekends needed to be highly structured and professionally facilitated utilizing the highest professional standards available. Weekends of Recovery are facilitated by trained therapists, utilizing the same clinical boundaries and code of ethics as adopted by the American Psychological Association. The weekends are adjuncts to participants' ongoing recovery work with individual and/or group psychotherapy, twelve step programs, and individual spiritual work, and are not meant to substitute for the participants' local support systems that are consistent with their own recovery.

Program Long-Term Success:

Since 2001, we have held over 50 weekends and have helped over 1,000 survivors and their partners.

Program Short-Term Success:

In 2013, we welcomed over 140 males survivors to a weekend. This was a 10% increase in attendance over 2012. In addition, since 2012 we have distributed over $26,000 in scholarship support to enable male survivors of limited economic means to attend a weekend.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.
