Apart from being a survivor and a pro survivor , I am also training to be an art therapist. I want to specialize in that field too and especially in helping male survivor so I would be very interested to exchange views on that.
I am currently looking for an internship in spring in Canada (Quebec). I knew only one institution called CRIPHASE which only welcome male survivors. They have added a group for partners. Unfortunately because of their usual lack of funds they can't garanty a date for the next sessions so I am left without internship.
I am still looking into other possibilities.
In France, there is a new master degree for the field of sexual assaults/ incest, they call that field "victimologie".
I have talked to a lot of male survivors and I am kind of comfortable talking about sex related issues, I am very open and completely non judgemental so I don't feel I would have a problem being accepted. I guess it is a matter of trust. I honestly think that most of the men I talked too really appreciated sharing their problems with a woman because it helped them to dedramatize the problem, also restoring the hope that they would meet a companion who would be like that. In a way they think: if one woman is like that, sure there must be another one like that for me !
Anyway I will tell you more about my field (art therapy through theatre and dance)
I think there are a lot we can do out there for you guys
