Public Seminar: responding to sexual abuse of boys

By May 3, 2017News

OUTLine NZ is presenting a special free public seminar and closed group seminar, with generous support from UNITEC.  The public seminar ‘Dealing with sexual abuse from a different perspective’ is presented by Greg Holtmeyer, Executive Director of The Phoenix Project based in Missouri, USA.  He is also an educator, advocate, and survivor of childhood sexual abuse.

My passion is to create awareness concerning the devastating effects of childhood sexual abuse.  I created The Phoenix Project to offer hope, education, support, and inspiration for those who are on their healing journey from sexual and physical abuse.  I have done presentations for small community based organizations to large state wide organizations and national level conferences.    My focus is to give voice and attention to the many male victims of sexual crimes who are waiting for support and understanding.”  For more information on Greg Holtmeyer click here.

The free public seminar is open to anyone – whether you are a medical professional, are a survivor yourself, or are simply interested in how best to support those that are. The public lecture is taking place on Monday 29th May 2017 at 3 p.m. Building 23, Mt Albert Campus, UNITEC. Please RSVP so we can ensure appropriate space is provided.
