Welcome to my website! I hope you will find inspiration, hope and healing here! I have devoted my career and my life to helping others, and I hope in the words, articles, interviews and links provided here, you will find help for yourself too. What I know to be true is that healing from sexual victimization, no matter what age it started or ended, is absolutely possible and achievable!
The pictures on these pages represent some of my favorite views from the beautiful places where we have hosted MaleSurvivor Weekends of Recovery. I hope to meet some of you at a future Weekend!
A great story from one of our statewide partners of our Ohio 2014 Dare to Dream tour; covers our successful Dare to Dream night in Athens, Ohio on 4/17/14. Thanks WOUB!
Thanks to Huffington Post and host Ricky Camilleri for another important dialog about male sexual victimization. Special thanks to colleague and friend Michael Skinner and advocate/coach Cory George, and Dr. Bryana French for her important research on sexual coercion among young men.
I am to be featured as an expert on a Huffington Post Live Show about sexual coercion among diverse males. See the study at http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/274574.php
Shocking results show that 43% of high school boys and young college men reported they had an unwanted sexual experience and of those, 95% said a female acquaintance was the aggressor. The study was published in the APA Journal, Psychology of Men and Masculinity.
I’ll post the link as soon as I have it. Thanks for listening in!
