IN COLLABORATION WITH:

CHANGES IN ACTION PSYCHOTHERAPY

Male Sexual Trauma & Recovery combines conceptual training on male sexual trauma with core intervention skills and strategies all designed to empower frontline workers to purposely intervene with male survivors. This combination of male-centred trauma theory and practice – with an emphasis on psychodynamic and experiential approaches – makes this training essential in addressing male sexual trauma in community practice.


AUDIENCE

This training is ideal for healthcare professionals, case managers, addictions staff, justice workers, as well as other front-line staff who have some clinical engagement with clients. A counselling background is necessary to benefit from all aspects of this training.
