Abstract/Excerpt

One in four men are sexually abused in their lifetime, though this may be grossly underestimated given the prevalence of stigmatization against male rape. In addition, affectional and gender minority (AGM) individuals are disproportionately affected by sexual trauma. Thus, male-identifying AGM individuals are at heightened risk for adverse outcomes, and necessitate nuanced approaches to counseling. This webinar will explore treatment engagement strategies for those individuals with sexual traumatization, with a focus on the unique intersection of male gender identity and AGM status.
