Male survivors of sexual abuse

BC School of Social Work Associate Professor Scott Easton has contributed a chapter to the new book Understanding the Sexual Betrayal of Boys and Men: The Trauma of Sexual Abuse, edited by Richard B. Gartner. The book presents chapters from the leading experts in the trauma, psychoanalytic, medical, and survivor treatment fields. In his chapter “Building Knowledge for Recovery: Contemporary Research on the Long-term Effects of Child Sexual Abuse on Men,” Easton provides an overview of existing research on male survivors of sexual abuse. He focuses on three areas: predictors of mental health problems for male survivors of sexual abuse, barriers to disclosure, and survivor growth post-trauma. Read more from Innovate, the BCSSW blog.
