Description: 

Boys and Men Healing is a film from director and producer Kathy Barbini, and co-producer Simon Weinberg of Big Voice Pictures.  Boys and Men Healing digs deep into the impact of male child sexual abuse on both the individual and society, and highlights the importance of male survivors healing and speaking out for the well being of our families, and communities.  Featuring non-offending men, this film shows the profound effects of boyhood sexual abuse - same, intimacy problems, sexual identity confusion, post-traumatic stress, substance abuse or and unresolved rage that led to violence.  Despite such devastating effects, each man ultimately chose the arduous task of healing.  Through counseling support groups and prevention advocacy, each man is a testimony of hope and the ability for survivors to thrive.

The event is free to the public and open to the media, though seating is limited.  Free parking in lots.
