The Stigma of Male Trauma

Men are rarely validated in our culture for the trauma they have experienced as children or adults. Men are most often seen as perpetrators of female trauma. Licensed Therapist Greg Hasek will explore the challenges this brings for men to seek help for the trauma they have experienced and why the invalidation of male trauma creates a terrible cycle of seeing men as once again perpetrators. The trauma of abortion is just one example of how men are invalidated in our culture.

Healing The Father

Chris Rainey, author of Healing the Father, shares how counselors and lay leaders can facilitate emotional and spiritual freedom for men who experience abortion. 

Chris Rainey

Healing The Father

 

For every abortion, a man is involved. A lot of focus is directed to the woman while the man is left to deal with the emotional aftermath that often accompanies an abortion. Chris counsels men with abortion experience(s) in “guy” terms and in messages and methods a guy can effectively process and deal with. Sometimes it is planting the Ecclesiastes 11:6 seed to grow a later day. Often the man can soon grow to view his experience in light of the forgiveness offered by God through His Son, Jesus Christ.
