One out of six males was sexually abused as a child, yet these crimes continue to be underreported and misunderstood. The boys (even as adults) find it difficult to disclose what has happened to them for the very real fear that they will be blamed or shamed. In fact, stereotypes about men and masculinity actually engender sexual victimization and prevent society from protecting male children against this crime. Now in Broken Boys/Mending Men, Stephen Grubman-Black, a counselor, seminar leader, and survivor of childhood abuse, explores what happens to adult survivors when the trauma of sexual abuse haunts their lives. In their own words, survivors describe how fathers, mothers, brothers, uncles, and trusted family friends robbed them of trust, and the ways in which these events have had a lasting impact. Grubman-Black reminds survivors that it is never too late to tell and that talking is the first step toward recovery and self-understanding. Supportive and caring, Broken Boys/Mending Men is written for male survivors, the people who love them, and their counselors. Readers will learn to listen and look for signs in themselves and others and help bring to light this hidden tragedy that so many boys and men have faced alone for too long, so that the healing process can begin.Grubman-Black, Stephen D. is the author of 'Broken Boys - Mending Men: Recovery from Childhood Sexual Abuse' with ISBN 9780804109406 and ISBN 0804109400.
