Working with Adult Male Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse
15 May 2018, 9.15am–4.00pm
University of New England, Level 1, 232 Church St, Parramatta

Cost: $50 (tax deductible donation)

Supported by the City of Parramatta, this workshop is designed for professionals who may provide support/services for adult male survivors of childhood sexual abuse, particularly Non-Government and Government service providers: teachers, social and community workers, health service workers and police. 

This workshop will explore the impacts of CSA on boys and men, along with strategies that can help them recover. The session concludes with a discussion with the co-founders of SAMSN.

Participants will learn:

  • The impact of the trauma of CSA on children
  • The effects of grooming and shame on the abused child
  • Trauma-informed care in working with adult male survivors, both individually and in groups
  • The particular impacts of CSA on males
  • What we have learned from the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse
  • The advantages that peer support brings to the recovery process

This workshop is being subsidised by the City of Parramatta, and priority is given to workers in local services/schools.
