About 1 in 6 adult males has been sexually assaulted as a child, yet it is a subject that generally is still shrouded in secrecy and shame. As a result, a large number of false beliefs and misconceptions - generally negative - about these men have arisen and persist. This course will examine and dispel these myths, explain the kind of trauma male children experience from sexual abuse, and describe the long-term psychological consequences. Attendees will learn to recognize how the experience, and the social stigma attached to it, affects these men, who may include a client, a colleague, or an attorney himself. Attendees will also learn how to deal with a disclosure, how to be supportive, what resources are available, and what referrals to make. The course features Dr. Richard Gartner, the leading expert on male childhood sexual trauma, and a panel discussion with Dr. Gartner, therapist Jim Struve, and actual male childhood sex crime survivors selected from the Rape Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN) Speakers Bureau.
