Male Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse and Help-Seeking

Background: At least 1 in 6 men in the United States experience sexual abuse prior to the age of 18, and the painful impact of that abuse can be devastating and long-lasting. Yet many men remain silent for decades before talking about the abuse, and even fewer seek professional help. This research project will help us understand why male survivors tend to stay away from therapy and counseling, and will help the psychology community design more appropriate and effective ways to reach out and help.

Who: Seeking men between the ages of 25-75 , who experienced sexual abuse in childhood, who feel that the abuse has had some negative impact on their lives, and who have never sought therapy or counseling specifically focusing on the abuse, to take part in interviews about the experience of seeking help. You will not be asked to talk about the details of the abuse and your identity will be held in the strictest confidence.

Contact: If you are interested, please contact Chris Tickner at 818-568-6982 or cticksoma@gmail.com to set up an initial 20 minute screening phone call, or click here for more information. Also please feel free to share this link with friends and family, on Facebook, etc.

For Confidential Study on Sexually Abused Men and Psychotherapy

Background: At least 1 in 6 males in the United States experience sexual abuse prior to the age of 18, and the impact of that abuse is often devastating and long-lasting. Yet many men remain silent for decades before talking about the abuse, and even fewer seek professional help. This research project will help us understand why men tend to stay away from therapy, and will help the psychology community design more appropriate and effective ways to reach out and help.

Who: Seeking men who experienced sexual abuse in childhood, who feel that the abuse has had some negative impact on their lives, and who have never or recently just sought treatment specifically focusing on the abuse (you might currently or have in the past been in therapy for other issues as well), to participate in interviews about the experience of seeking help. You will not be asked to talk about the details of the abuse and your identity will be held in the strictest confidence.

Contact: If you are interested to be a part of this study, please contact Chris Tickner to set up an initial 20 minute screening phone call.
