PRESENTER: Carol Teitelbaum, LFMT

Course meets the qualifications for 2 hours of continuing education credit for LMFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs and/or LEPs as required by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences.  Registrants must attend the full 2 hours to receive CEs..

This course demonstrates credibility through the involvement of the broader mental health practices and education. There is still very little education about male survivors or how to treat them. Gaining understanding and knowing how important the therapist role is to this population is important to therapists. Therapists need to be comfortable with sexuality,  have education in sexuality and be willing to talk about it. 


After the presentation the audience will be able to:

1) Participants will be able to describe the ACE test and share the value.

2) Participants will be able to name three roadblocks for men sharing their story.

3) Participants will be able to discuss two benefits of telling one’s story.

4) Participants will be able to list three tools for recovery.

Educational goals:

Increase awareness and understanding of the challenges faced by male survivors.

Strengthen networks among professionals, survivors, and advocates.

Practical strategies and tools for supporting and empowering male survivors.

Initiation of discussions leading to policy changes and improved support systems.
