Workshop Description:

Currently, there is limited research/interventions that addresses the nuances of working with African American men who have experienced sexual trauma. Overall, 1 in 6 men have experienced some form of unwanted or abusive sexual experiences before age 18. Males also make up 10% of the total population of those who have experienced sexual abuse. However, this percentage could be higher due to men not disclosing their experience. The purpose of this presentation is to prepare clinicians on how to work with African American male survivors of Sexual Trauma. The following areas of clinical work will be reviewed: building rapport, discussing myths, and identifying useful coping mechanisms specific to working with male survivors.

 

Level of Difficulty: Introductory

Target Audience: Therapists and anyone interested in working with African American male survivors of Sexual Assault  

 

Learning Objectives:

  1. To better understand the effects of sexual trauma with African American men and to identify help seeking behaviors of those survivors.
  2. Address what factors help facilitate African American male victims of sexual trauma to disclose their experience of sexual trauma.
  3. Help educate the community at large of issues facing African American men who identify themselves as survivors of sexual trauma.
  4. Discuss the gaps in research and interventions towards a vulnerable population in sexual assault.
