An educational opportunity to explore the effects of childhood sexual abuse for men. Participants will learn the difficulties men experience due to the messages they receive in childhood regarding being strong, protective and not showing vulnerability. We will investigate the correlation of hurt and shame and the use of drugs and alcohol.

He is also the founder of the Courageous Healers Foundation, a certified Life Coach - "Change Your Life Story Now" - and an associate of "It Happens to Boys." He speaks at conferences, schools and treatment facilities about the effects of abuse on men and how it is possible to heal from those effects. Randy is also the author of the new groundbreaking book addressing the emotional, physical, sexual, and spiritual abuse of boys entitled "Healing the Man Within - A Guide to Healing From the Pain of Sexual Abuse." His blogs are featured regularly on the 1in6 and Joyful Heart Foundation websites and the Keystones to Recovery newspaper..
