00:59- What got you interested in the subject?

  • I was a Royal Canadian Mounted Police Officer.
  • I assisted in the development of the Integrated Child Sexual Exploitation Unit.
  • Before working in this unit, I had no idea that boys were being abused.
  • Male sexual abuse is as damaging, if not, worse than female sexual abuse.
  • I decided to pursue my doctorate degree in Psychology and researched why men are not disclosing sexual abuse.

06:18- What are the signs to watch out for?

  • Catching a predator in the grooming process, they typically will try to spend time with their potential victim to win their affection so that the victim appears as a willing participant.

12:55- What is the role society and government can play to be able to mitigate this big problem?

  • We really have to work on taking away this stigma that if a male was abused, it means he’s weak or that he enjoyed it.
  • We have to make it safe for boys and men to come and get the help that they need.
  • Another big reason boys and men are not reporting is because their bodies respond favorably to that abuse.
  • We require mandatory education and more treatment facilities.
