Consumer Guide To Finding A Therapist. Ken Singer, Lcsw

Note: For simplicity, all references to the floor the therapist would be 'he' or 'him', but we know that many therapists who work with men / boys who have experienced sexual abuse – female and they may also competent (or incompetent), as well as male physicians. Looking for a good therapist? Interested in changing your current therapist? This is not a simple thing as buying a car. At least you can get Consumer advice and objective information, if you are looking for a vehicle. How can you get information about good therapists who are familiar with the problems arising in men / boys, survivors of sexual Violence? Sometimes it can be recommended to other survivors. But what if you are healing in the absence of support systems for men / boys, survivors of sexual abuse, and can not get a recommendation? As a specialist, several years of working with survivors of the men / boys, I have seen many men who started the wrong direction, inadequate or harmful treatment. Sometimes, the lack of recognition of the fact that he does not have enough experience dealing with problems in survivors of human male – this is a mistake on the part of the therapist. The experience of the therapist may be limited to attending seminars at the conference or reading a book on the subject. At that time, it can be genuinely interested in working with men / boys who have experienced sexual abuse, the therapist – and not survived – will learn on the job, but you'll pay him the money.
