While his role has shifted to focus on prevention he still delivers workshops on male victimization that has traveled across UNH, the State of NH, conferences, and nationally to help educate people on best practices.

Male Victims of Sexual Assault: Deconstructing Myths and Creating a Community of Healing

 

This workshop is divided into two parts; examining the myths and misconceptions and how do we create a community that is conducive to healing. It is an interactive program that combines group activities, videos, and current research to provide a space that allows people to ask questions and learn more about this often forgotten about population. Attendees should leave with an understanding of the population, barriers to disclosure, and have solid strategies to begin to make our work more inclusive.
