Scared Boys to Aggressive Men
Scared Boys to Aggressive Men focuses on how easily it is for boys who’ve been exposed to domestic abuse can slip into the role of abuser when they step into relationships. The transition from victim to abuser is far too easy for men as childhood silence and shame turn into adult rage and violence.
The outcomes of this workshop are:
Discuss domestic abuse from a male lived experience perspective
Discover the evolution of victim to abuser
Understand the issues surrounding domestic abuse, particularly in men.
Creating an open dialogue for Men to challenge and share their experiences as a child is one of the ways we can stop the cycle of violence in the home.
TRIGGER WARNING: This talk discusses types of specific violence and abuse, mental health issues, homelessness and suicide.
Trigger warnings, visual ques and muting will be available for participants.
