Facilitating Male Trauma Survivors’ Meaningful Involvement in Health Research
Sexual abuse is an international problem and an often overlooked public health issue for men and boys. Given the prevalence of trauma and its well-documented connection to mental and physical health disorders, the relevance of male survivor input and engagement in healthcare research is profound.
With funding by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute, MaleSurvivor has partnered with researchers from Yale University Department of Psychiatry, Department of Veterans Affairs’ National Center for PTSD, and the American Psychological Association’s Division of Trauma Psychology in a project to gain understanding of male trauma survivors’ perspectives on involvement in research and equip and empower them to play active and substantive roles as equitable partners in all aspects of research.
