Brief Episode Summary:
Male Sexual Abuse occurs far more commonly than previously suspected, yet too few victims ever seek support, choosing instead, to suffer in silence! Rather, they cope through avoidance, isolation, substance abuse, hyper-masculinity and more. Dr. Palfy’s book, MEN TOO: UNSPOKEN TRUTHS ABOUT MALE SEXUAL ABUSE, is for male survivors and their supporters. It highlights the complex and unique barriers boys and men face during and after abuse, helping to put them on the road to recovery!
Dr. Kelli began her career working in adult and youth corrections. Later, she went on to become an RCMP officer, specializing in investigating sex crimes committed against children internationally.
After retiring from the RCMP, Dr. Palfy obtained her Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Alberta. She is a trained trauma therapist with a private practice focused on male survivors of abuse, first responders and couples. She is also a respected speaker and author on male sexual abuse. Moreover, she is essential!
