Description: The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (2020) reported that nearly 1 in 4 men in the U.S. experienced some form of contact sexual violence in their lifetime, about 1 in 14 men in the U.S. were made to penetrate someone during their lifetime, and more than 1 in 38 men in the U.S. experienced completed or attempted rape victimization in their lifetime. Despite this prevalence, our social, legal, and medical and mental health systems have failed to adapt to the differential needs of male survivors. This webinar is intended to both help mental health professionals better understand the sociocultural environment impacting male-identifying survivors of sexual violence as well as educate clinicians on how to better support survivors in their own role as counselors.
