Understanding Men Sexually Abused in Childhood
This 90 minute workshop for advocates and other professionals who work with men, provides an opportunity to consider the particular ways men may respond differently to childhood sexual abuse.

- Name ways that working with male survivors MAY differ significantly from working with female survivors
