Event description
Join Rick Goodwin and learn core intervention skills and strategies to purposely intervene with male survivors of trauma.

About this Event

From Conceptualization to Engagement combines conceptual training on male sexual trauma with core intervention skills and strategies to empower frontline workers to purposely intervene with male survivors. This combination of trauma theory and practice – with an emphasis on cognitive and psychodynamic approaches – addresses many of the practical and clinical concerns of frontline professionals.

The first day starts with a male-centred approach to both intervention and counselling, and with it an exploration of male psychology. In particular, we examine the intersection between men’s gender coding with men facing adversity. An overview of current research on both male sexual abuse and sexual assault follows. Trauma is then explored, both conceptually in the lives of men, as well as through experiential portrayal and video testimonies of male survivors.

The second day emphasizes a variety of cognitive and psychodynamic engagement strategies in working with male survivors, which are demonstrated though lecture, role plays, dramatic presentations and group discussion. It also focuses on two aspects in the lives of many male survivors: issues of rage and violence, as well sexually dysregulated behaviours. From crisis intervention to the final phases of trauma care, the day finishes on strengths-based therapeutic approaches and multi-faceted reflections of men’s healing.

The event will run 9am to 4:30pm On Oct 24th and 25th; registration will open at 8:30am.

The event has been approved for 13 CEUs through the CACCF.
