Interesting reading this topic again and seeing my previous replies.
I can add a couple of points however about the Uk given that I'm trying to get therapy at the moment.
Firstly, the criteria for recieving therapy for surviving sa in the Uk, is that it has to have been done by a family member. No! I don't know why either.
If you go through the courts the court can provide a some of money to pay for private treatment, and the courts also have some therapists who take referals (though whether any of them deal with male victims I don't know).
However if you don't want to sue anybody your a bit stumped.
on the plus side is the charity Isas who I will be getting councelling with who's website is here:http://www.isas-notts.org.uk/service-users/male-service-users.cfm
I was particularly impressed by the fact that during my assessment, they knew this website, and new Mike Lue's book. They also gave a gender choice of councelers to speak to and indeed the lady who did my assessment asked if I'd be more comfortable explaining the generalities of my abuse to a man, I was okay given that she was an older lady but I appreciated being asked.
So, support for male victitims is existing more.
