The Sexual Abuse Of Males

I am an independent consultant in several areas (e.g., forensic, see Professional Services), and a Clinical Instructor of Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry of Harvard Medical School.
I was a founding board member of 1in6, Inc., a nonprofit devoted to helping men who've had unwanted or abusive sexual experiences as boys live happier, healthier lives; I authored the pages of from 2008 through 2011. I am also on the board of directors of Stop It Now!, a nonprofit that prevents the sexual abuse of children by mobilizing adults, families and communities to take actions that protect children before they are harmed.

Here are the reasons I have published this page:
  1. To help those looking for resources on the sexual abuse of boys and the lasting effects of childhood sexual abuse in the lives of men.
  2. To provide resources for men who were sexually abused in childhood and want to know what professional researchers and therapists have learned, without having to read scholarly journals and books.
  3. To provide resources for girlfriends, spouses, partners, friends and family members of men who were (or may have been) sexually abused in childhood.
Here are some key messages for men who were sexually abused in childhood:
  • You are not alone.
  • You can educate yourself.
  • Other guys struggle with their masculinity too.
  • There are people who understand what you're dealing with and can help.
