The immediate and long-term impact of incest, childhood sexual abuse, and/or rape can include feelings of anxiety, depression, low self-worth, self-doubt, identity confusion, and a sense of shame. For male survivors of sexual abuse, the pain surrounding their trauma is often compounded by isolation and secrecy – as well as cultural messages about what it means to be a male and mistaken ideas linking abuse and homosexuality. Healing is available when men begin to speak about their experiences, connect with other survivors, understand that the abuse was not their fault, and begin to see themselves as resilient and whole. The Resiliency Center Director Elizabeth Venart is a Licensed Professional Counselor who has been providing individual, couples, and group counseling to survivors of sexual abuse for nearly twenty years. She will be co-facilitating the group with Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Jeff Katowitz. Contact Elizabeth for information about start dates for sessions.
