Out Now – Dr Alan Corbett’s new book

IPD are pleased to announce that IPD Fellow and founder member Dr. Alan Corbett’s new book ‘Psychotherapy with Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse: The Invisible Men’ has just been published as part of the Karnac Forensic Psychotherapy Monograph Series.

This book focuses on the therapeutic needs of men who have experienced sexual trauma, either in childhood or adult life. Drawing on the author’s extensive clinical experience The Invisible Men examines the impact of sexual abuse upon boys and men, and looks at the particularly gendered impact of sexual attacks upon masculinity. Creative ways of working both individually and in groups with male survivors and those supporting them are explored, providing a unique insight into a much neglected area of therapeutic endeavour.
