This screening is FREE, and open to the public. There will be a facilitated discussion following the film, and participants are encouraged to schedule child sexual abuse prevention trainings with Enough Abuse Tompkins to ensure that the childhood abuse experiences of the men featured in the film are not re-lived in our community.

Boys and Men Healing is a documentary about the epidemic of sexual abuse of boys, the impact on individuals, families, and society. The film portrays stories of three courageous non-offending men whose arduous healing helped them reclaim their lives-while giving them a powerful voice to speak out, and take bold action toward prevention for other boys. The film includes a support group of men and is testimony to the importance of men finding safe places to support one another and share their stories together. The film was produced under the sponsorship of the International Documentary Association.

English and/or Spanish subtitles can be shown during the screening if interested parties contact eatompkins@actompkins.org before the event.
