CE Event: Working with Substance Abuse Risk Factors & Male Survivors of Sexual Violence
Featuring Phillip McCabe, CSW, CAS, CDVC, DRCC
Sexual violence is a serious problem that affects millions of people every year. Sexual violence is any sexual act that is forced against someone’s will and covers a broad range including and not limited to harassment, cyberspace/internet abuse, stalking, interpersonal violence, molestation, incest, rape and murder. This workshop will address how incidents of male sexual assault continue to be under reported and the after effects of abuse minimized and or not disclosed in the histories of male clients. Additionally the trauma of sexual assault may more than double the risk of substance abuse for survivors. Individuals with a history of sexual trauma need to receive treatment in a safe and supportive environment that is trauma sensitive. Through lecture, case study and group discussion participants will gain a better understanding on how to create a safe environment for men with a history of trauma, identify treatment issues specific to male clients, learn how to assist clients in early recovery, and when to make appropriate referrals.
