Agencies : Learn What Male Survivors Need
Male survivors can be invisible victims of sexual abuse. It can be very useful for agencies to understand the signs that a man may have been sexually abused  Men manifest the consequences of trauma in very different and not always obvious ways. Men can exhibit damaging behaviors that range from difficulty with intimacy, low self-esteem and work addiction.

Better Blokes has worked with male survivors of sexual abuse for over a decade . We can provide agencies with management presentations, larger group seminars and peer support training.
