“Michael Jascz is the founder of The Relationship Foundation, an educational initiative at the forefront of a unique approach to Social and Emotional Learning with proven results. For 20 years, Michael has dedicated himself to helping people build healthy and thriving relationships as a coach and an instructor.  Doing this work has helped him to face his childhood trauma and ensuing anxiety and depression.

The Healing Place Podcast: Dr. Kelli Palfy – Male Sexual Abuse; Me(n) Too; Pedophile Profiles; & Caregiver Response

Grateful to have Dr. Kelli Palfy, Registered Psychologist, join me to discuss:

  • male sexual abuse
  • her book ME^N TOO: UNSPOKEN TRUTHS ABOUT MALE SEXUAL ABUSE
  • pedophile profiles and habits
  • caregiver response to disclosure
  • and so much more!

Welcome to The Healing Place Podcast! I am your host, Teri Wellbrock. You can listen in on Pandora, iTunesBlubrrySpotify, Deezer, Google Podcasts, Amazon Music, Podbean, and more, or directly on my website at www.teriwellbrock.com/podcasts/. You can also watch our insightful interview on YouTube.

Bio:

“Dr. Kelli Palfy began her professional career working in adult and youth corrections. Here she noticed a disproportionate number of males in the system. After becoming an RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) officer, she took an interest in investigating sex crimes and went on to specialize in sex crimes committed against children internationally. Here, as she combed through video evidence, she witnessed first-hand the grooming tactics commonly used by sophisticated pedophiles.

After retiring from the RCMP, Dr. Palfy obtained her Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Alberta. She conducted her doctoral research on the reasons why males don’t commonly disclose sexual abuse. She is now a trained trauma therapist and public speaker on the topic of male abuse. Dr. Palfy currently runs a small private practice where she works with male survivors of sexual abuse, first responders and couples using Emotion-Focused and Cognitive Behavioral Approach, plus Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Outside of her professional life she enjoys hiking, cycling, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, hanging out with friends and pets.”

Learn more about Kelli and her mission at http://kellipalfy.ca/

Book Description:

Male sexual abuse occurs more commonly among infants, youth and adults than was previously suspected. Despite knowing this, disproportionately few males seek support. Many remain silent, protect their families, and cope through isolating or numbing, themselves, misusing substances and engaging in sexual promiscuity or hypermasculinity.

ME^N TOO: UNSPOKEN TRUTHS ABOUT MALE SEXUAL ABUSE is for male survivors, their supporters and helping professionals. It is an educational, honest, yet heart-wrenching look at the stories of 13 male sexual abuse victims – it is written from their perspective, with the wisdom of retired police officer and psychologist, Dr. Kelli Palfy.

Through their narrative accounts, Dr. Palfy offers:

· Male victims – Healing through recognition of both their positions as victims and the impact of their abuse.

· Parents and teachers – Strategies to identify common yet sophisticated predatory grooming tactics, plus ideas on how to better protect children from abusers.

· First responders and helping professionals – information to better recognize the signs of traumatized people, examples of male abuse explaining when it began, how it was maintained and why the victims remained silent for so long.

For the sake of our boys and men, discussions about male sexual abuse need to increase. Male victims need to feel safe asking for support. ME^N TOO highlights the many unique barriers boys and men face as they contemplate their road to recovery.
