What About Our Boys? Understanding the Challenges Facing Male Victims of Sexual Abuse and Assault
Male victims can experience overwhelming gender bias when disclosing sexual abuse, whether their perpetrator is male or female. This program discusses male sexual victimization, the unique challenges men face and the myths that keep male victims silent. We'll discover how "The Adverse Childhood Experiences Study" validates what many professionals have long believed about both the frequency and the resulting trauma of male sexual victimization. We'll offer specific trauma informed approaches to working with male victims - from disclosure to therapy. Resources for male survivors will be shared.
