Tune in to Psych Up Live on April 27, 2017 to hear Dr. Richard Gartner discuss “ Understanding and Treating Sexually Betrayed Boys and Men.”
Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/27/2017 -- Dr. Gartner will draw upon his experience with thousands of men, his books and his two new books, Understanding the Sexual Betrayal of Boys and Men: The Trauma of Sexual Abuse AND Healing Sexually Betrayed Men and Boys: Treatment for Sexual Abuse, Assault, and Trauma ( to be released in August). He will define sexual betrayal and abuse and identify the myths of male sexual abuse. He will make sense of the silence and the reasons some boys and men cannot remember. He will discuss the impact when the abuser is a parent, clergy or revered person and what brings men to treatment. Listing celebrities, athletes, and politicians who have disclosed their sexual abuse and moved forward with life, he will invite boys and men to realize that they are not alone, that resources like MaleSurviovor.org are available and that going forward is possible.
