Abstract

© , Copyright © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.The aim of this study was to identify the implications of masculinity for male sexual abuse survivors. To address the lack of research on male sexual abuse survivors, this study focuses on the trauma sustained by male survivors and the interplay of the cultural concept of masculinity. Given the sensitive nature of this topic and to protect the respondents, a three-phase methodological design was used. Initial observation of the participants in the treatment groups was followed by fieldwork involving focus groups and, eventually, in-depth individual interviews. This study’s implications for social workers helping male sexual abuse survivors are discussed through the lens of masculinity.
