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 workshop will explore how providers working with men in clinical or non-clinical settings can remain sensitive and receptive to a possible underlying source of many men’s negative behaviors and provide resources.
