This includes coffee and pastries in the morning and lunch. Even advanced professionals are surprised to learn that 1 in 6 men have experienced sexual trauma. This training is designed to help mental-health professionals and providers in related fields gain a better understanding of the continuum of sexual trauma and of the impact of sexual abuse on men. The session will describe clinically effective techniques for recognizing and assessing for trauma, provide a conceptual framework for trauma treatment, and explain clinically appropriate responses and interventions. A networking luncheon will provide a forum for sharing local and national resources for male survivors and providers. Providers are encouraged to bring resource materials to share. Dr. Howard Fradkin has counseled over 1,000 male survivors in various contexts over the course of his 28-year career as a psychologist. He is the co-chairperson and co-founder of the Male Survivor Weekends of Recovery intensive weekend workshops for men at all stages of recovery from sexual trauma. Dr. Fradkin was recently invited to appear as an expert on Oprah’s ground-breaking shows featuring 200 male survivors, who gathered to offer hope and inspiration for millions of survivors worldwide.
