Upcoming Training Events

Understanding male sexual violation – Introductory training

facilitated by Sally Anderson

At the end of this two-day course you will have gained an understanding of the impact of sexual violation, and the specific and often enduring effects it can have on boys and men. You will feel more able to respond helpfully if a man discloses to you he has been sexually violated at any point in his life, and have an understanding of the difficulties he may have faced in speaking out. Additionally, you will learn about the emotional impact working with men with these issues can have on you as a professional and how to manage this.

This introductory course is suitable for professionals from a wide range of backgrounds (such as social workers, teachers, police, prison staff, counsellors, psychotherapists, nurses) who may encounter men who have experienced sexual violation and wish to know how to support them.

Topics covered include:

  • Historical context of sexual abuse.
  • What is sexual violation? Who are the perpetrators? What are the statistics?
  • What are the signs and effects of sexual violation?
  • What are the common effects of sexual violation on boys/men? Do they differ from women and, if so, in what ways?
  • Misconceptions and myths.
  • Disclosure – what are the barriers? When might boys/men disclose and why?
  • The impact of culture and religion on disclosure.
  • How to respond to disclosures.
  • Vicarious traumatisation and self-care.

(NB: Completion of this course is a partial prerequisite for counsellors, psychotherapists, arts therapists and psychologists wishing to be included in the SurvivorsUK National Database of Male Sexual Abuse Counselling and Support Services.)

 

Sally has been working for SurvivorsUK since October 2005 as an individual and group psychotherapist, telephone helpliner, trainer and workshop facilitator. She has many years’ experience as a dramatherapist on inpatient psychiatric wards in the NHS and Private Hospital Sector, and provides training within the NHS on various topics.

Working therapeutically with men who have experienced sexual violation – how to make useful meaning out of the difficult feelings in this work.

Using theories from different therapeutic modalities, and the opportunity to explore clinical cases, the day offers the chance for practitioners to work both theoretically and experientially.

It is suitable for qualified counsellors/psychotherapists who work with men who have been sexually violated.
