What About the Boys? Treating Sexual Traumatized and Dissociative Male Homosexual Youth

Sunday, March 25

Location: Logan

The treatment of sexual traumatized and dissociative male homosexual youth has specific aspects that influence the efficacy of the treatment.
These gay youths have a higher risk for many psychiatric disorders and suicide.
Bullying, discrimination and non-acceptance by family and friends can promote traumatization and depression. They tend to use more illegal drugs, are often promiscuous and sex as self-injury can be an issue.  
In therapy there are different patterns of transference also depending on the sexual identity of the therapist.
This workshop reviews scientific research and discusses transference patterns, risks of HIV, illegal drugs, chem sex, gay relation forms, dating apps, prostitution in the context of improving the results of the therapy for traumatized and dissociative male gay youth.
