I have seen this person in the Who's Online and I just read the "If you are considering suicide post." I have not considerd suicide but I have seen it several times so I read it.

Ken Singer has "LCSW" after his name. Is he a bona fide (checked out) therapist and is he a survivor?

Just curious.

From what I know (in my four years or such here), Ken is indeed a 'real' therapist, who work with both survivors and with perpetrators, and so can bring very importent and good thoughts to lot of issues. It is my thinking that he have state in the past that he is not himself a survivor, but I could not be sure that is absolute true. I am sure one of moderaters could respond to you better on that. But I do know that from what I seen in my time here, Ken is someone who have done much work for helping provide good security and positiveness at this site.

LCSW means "licensed clinical social worker", and that's what Ken does. He has worked with male survivors for over 30 years; he's a pioneering leader in this field and a past president of our organization. He's been a moderator since 1993, longer than any other active member has been around.

Ken is not a survivor himself and doesn't present himself as one. But his knowledge of CSA of males, empathy with survivors and commitment to MS make him a very important person here. I can't think of anyone I know on the site who has done more for our community over the years.

Much love,
Larry

Edited to correct "part president" to "past president"
