Description: 

Because social norms for men often inhibit their effective emotional responses to childhood trauma, men often learn to cope other ways — sometimes not so effective ways. These may include addiction to alcohol, drugs, food, work, pornography and unsafe sexual practices; risky physical activities; issues with anger management; suicide, and physical violence. So instead of calling rape crisis centers or mental health clinics, male survivors often show up in court, rehab facilities, or in the ER without ever disclosing their secret.This webinar explores: Men’s presenting issues that may reflect a history of childhood sexual abuse; resources and options for men who have experienced childhood sexual abuse; ineffective coping strategies men use that may be related to childhood sexual abuse; ways men may respond differently from women to a history of abuse; availability of resources for male survivors; social/cultural norms for men that inhibit male survivors from reaching out for help; self-care issues that may arise when working with male survivors; and impact of abuse and resources for secondary survivors (family and loved ones).

Description: 

This webinar for social service providers, law enforcement and other professionals who work with men, provides an opportunity to consider the particular ways men may respond differently to childhood sexual abuse. Whatever your level of knowledge about working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse, this interactive webinar may encourage you to rethink your current assumptions, examine your expectations and to employ a lens of masculinity to enhance your existing skills when working with men.This workshop explores: Common misunderstandings about men and sexual abuse; special barriers men face in disclosing childhood abuse; how cultural norms may inhibit men from seeking treatment (Gender expression, Sexual Orientation, Race, Ethnicity, Faith…); the importance and role of language in advocacy & education; helpful audit tools for program effectiveness; discussion of existing resources and the challenge of finding therapists specifically trained to work with male survivors of sexual abuse; and guidance on the critical need to remain neutral when raising the issue of sexual abuse or responding to a disclosure.
