It's inspiring to participate in a conference
where acknowledging  the impact of trauma on
men's lives and pursuing a complex
understanding of men's behaviors are accepted
as the foundations of the work rather than being
considered re voluntary ideas!

Read what some of our speakers had to say
"The Seventh Annual It Happens to Boys
Conference was truly exceptional. I applaud Carol
and her staff for sponsoring such an important
conference on a very sensitive topic with such
compassion and professionalism. The choice of
speakers as well as the topics filled the two days
with great clinical techniques for helping victims. As
a presenter I was honored to be invited and I soon
realized that the attendees quickly became
consumers of all that was offered. Their appreciation
for the quality and genuineness of the conference
was obvious to everyone. It was a great two days".

This conference features a line-up of leading clinicians,
educators, authors, and advocates. It sensitively
explores childhood sexual abuse and offers a clear
path to help, healing, and hope. A highlight is the
Courageous Healers panel, a group of recovering men
sharing their experience, strength, and hope. This
conference is a homerun.
