MaleSurvivor will be presenting a full day of training for clinicians, social workers, advocates, and staff who want to better understand how to work with the male Survivor population. In addition, we will be hosting in collaboration with a number of community partners a FREE screening if the documentary Boys and Men Healing, followed by a facilitated Q&A open to the Southern California community.

Workshop Overview
A full-day training for clinicians, social workers, and staff who want to better understand how to work with the male survivor population.

Workshop Description
This workshop will explore issues surrounding the sexual victimization of males through the use of film, clinical case examples, personal sharing, and audience participation. Presented from both the clinician's and the survivor's perspective, we hope to help attendees better understand the complex, and often misunderstood, dynamics of being a male survivor and some of the unique challenges and pressures faced by this population.

Included will be a defining of terms, a focus on myths surrounding male sexual victimization, distinguishing features between male and female survivors, and understanding the clinical dynamics and after-effects of abuse. The workshop will also include information on the extent to which sexual abuse of males occurs and place that information into context.

We will explore what are effective prevention strategies that can be taught to community members and clients. Lastly, we'll explore the rewards of working in this field, and present a paradigm for thinking about recovery that will leave participants re-energized for the important work they do every day.

"The film is a powerful message for male survivors who may be too ashamed or caught up in gender stereotypes to progress into healing. This work gives men a model of strength and recovery from something that they did not want in childhood and provides a good message of hope and healing."

— Ken Singer, LCSW, Author, Evicting the Perpetrator: A Male Survivors Guide to Recovery from Child Sexual Abuse
