Please join WINGS as we sponsor this amazing event featuring Daniel Blausey, an expert in the field of art therapy and childhood sexual abuse. This training will provide stark statistics, a clear and expansive definition of childhood sexual abuse of boys, and the correlation between sexual trauma and symptoms of trauma in adult men.

Mr. Blausey will expand on the recovery and healing process, the ramifications of myths, the role of the art therapist/psychotherapist, and therapeutic interventions for men seeking treatment. Interventions include integrating creative arts therapy techniques and mindfulness exercises to further enhance the healing process.
