Office Mike Steven on providing the necessary support for male victims and survivors. We must #ListenBelieveRespect. S1E10
In the season one finale of Journey On: Men Healing from Sexual Abuse & Assault, host D.J. Burr talks with Patrol Officer Mike Steven of the Avon and Somerset Constabulary in the U.K. Mike is a strong advocate for male survivors. He is working diligently to increase awareness about male sexual abuse and assault; increase accessibility to services for male survivors, and increase the visibility of the services provided by engaging in a social media campaign aimed at reaching those survivors who have not been able to come forward previously. Listen for the differences in how the US and the UK deliver services and legal protections to survivors. Follow Mike on Twitter @ASPMikeSteven. #ListenBelieveRespect
Hosted by D.J. Burr - a Seattle psychotherapist and author of I Just Wanted Love: Recovery of a Codependent, Sex and Love Addict.
Each episode of Journey On features real life accounts of sexual abuse and assault. You may be triggered by what you hear. I advise self-care tools; reaching out to a friend, seeing your therapist, picking a new time to listen to the show, or even listening with a group of friends. Take care of yourself first.
