Boys and Men Healing from Child Sexual Abuse

Boys and Men Healing is a documentary about the impact sexual abuse of boys has on both the individual and society, and the importance of healing and the speaking out of survivors to end the devastating effects of abuse. The film portrays courageous non-offending men whose arduous healing and work to overcome PTSD helped them reclaim their lives and gave them a powerful voice to speak out and take bold action toward prevention for other boys.  It is a source of hope and inspiration for all men who have suffered sexual abuse and violence.

The program features David Lisak's moving and poignant personal story of facing his own childhood sexual abuse, his dedication to speaking out, and his work educating others about the impact of male child sexual abuse on the cycle of violence. Also featured is Mark Crawford whose story is a true hero's journey of a survivor working relentlessly and successfully against all odds to change unjust laws and to seek justice for male survivors.  Another survivor, Tony Rogers who was raped by a pedophile when he was 9 years old was able to break the cycle of violence and self-destruction through his commitment to heal, and support other men through much-needed peer-led groups.

"'Boys and Men Healing' is a rare and nakedly honest view of the journey three men in particular have taken to address the horrors visited upon them by older offending males...The three male survivors...are diverse in their backgrounds but strikingly common in their struggles and their eventual triumph over the abuse they endured."

Roger Canaff, attorney, Highly Qualified Expert for the Department of the Army investigating and prosecuting sexual assault cases within the armed forces    

"A powerful documentary... Tackles a difficult topic in a matter-of-fact fashion that make it all more moving.... It may also serve to encourage those still keeping their secrets locked inside to take action. Recommended."

 Video Librarian  May/June 2011

 

"'Boys and Men Healing'... a powerful film, which will truly benefit men sexually abused as children, and those who care about them....the potential to transform those stories and voices into healing -not only for individuals but also for families, communities, and even societies."

Jim Hopper, Ph.D. Founding Board Member, 1in6.org

"It is an excellent film for teaching about children's experiences of sexual abuse and the multiple experiences that support their recovery...a marvelous gift!"

Ernesto Mujica, Ph.D, Clinical Psychologist and Psychoanalyst, NYSPA Division of Psychonanalysis
