SHARING OUR WEALTH OF RESOURCES
We are updating our website Resources for Survivors with the addition of a MenHealing Publications page. This will feature publications authored by personnel directly affiliated with MenHealing. PDF documents for a variety of chapters will be included for free user access as well as brief descriptions for books and where to access for purchase. During upcoming months, we will be expanding the number of publications that are posted.
As we launch this new section of our website, here are examples of two PDF documents that are currently included:
Empowering Male Survivors To Heal Through Community And Peer Connections
Co-authored by Howard Fradkin & Jim Struve
This chapter from Understanding the Sexual Betrayal of Boys and Men focuses on empowerment as a crucial component of the healing process for male survivors of sexual trauma.
Clinical Perspectives About Male Sexual Victimization: The Cultural and Historical Context of Gender
Co-authored by Jim Struve and Joanna Colrain
This chapter from Handbook of Interpersonal Violence Across the Lifespan focuses on a range of contemporary clinical issues that are impacted by considerations of gender and social justice.
