EP106: Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse

EP106: Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse

This is not a light episode. And we were reluctant to release this episode before the holidays, but as you'll hear in the intro, our guest, Don Wright, explains that the holidays can be very triggering for victims. Hearing this episode may give them the support they need to get through the holidays. In Canada, there are over 300 transition houses for women escaping abusive relationships. There are zero transition houses for men. And there are only 4 offices across all of Canada that focus on helping men who have been victims. Even more interestingly, the cases of of sexual abuse amongst youth, is equally distributed amongst boys and girls. So despite the fact that men and women are equally as victimized as youth, there are extremely few resources for men. This episode will explain a lot.  Formal show notes with time stamps coming soon.
