  •  Brave and so helpful! (6+ / 0-)

    To speak out. I wrote a long diary here about a lot of details in all this, but healing from childhood abuse I didn't get into much. While help and resources are miniscule in a lot of ways as compared to what is available for women, there is still a lot you can make use of.

    Books, movies, documentaries, therapists, support groups, on-line forums, people to contact as peers, various organizations for self-help and services, ...

    I tell men a lot that while it's a lot of painful work to heal and change, everyone tends to say it is really very, very worth the effort. Let me know if I can be of help to you. I've been at this quite a long time.

      for free or at a very affordable rates for incarcerated & post-release perpetrators that have ever been available for survivors.

      I don't know the current research, especially on post-release & diverted  first- offenders, but 5 or 6 year ago the research on the impact of  treatment for incarcerated offenders  was dismal--no impact to even a negative impact on recidivism rates.  I sure the treatment folks meant well, but they  were so invested, emotionally even, that many saw evidence-based studies as an attack on the concept of & expenditures for treatment of perps.
