The most recent Crime Survey for England and Wales estimated that 143,000 males aged 16 to 59 years were victims of a sexual assault in the last year. The Crown Prosecution Service acknowledges around 16 per cent of reported sexual offence victims are male, with the vast majority of incidents never even being reported to the police. Many male survivors worry that professionals may not understand that boys and men can also be victims of this crime. Our training offers a thorough insight into recognising the impact of their past traumas to enable practitioners to understand and deliver services that will meet their needs. 

This 1-day workshop will give you the knowledge and understanding on how to support a male survivor in a sensitive and trauma-informed way, including through disclosure, allowing the survivor to know how he can access specialist support to meet his needs.
