Social Norms and Their Impact on Beliefs Around Masculinity

Cindy Pierce, a social sexuality educator, storyteller, speaker, and author, joins Learning Courage's Jamie Forbes to discuss how to support male survivors of sexual abuse. Pierce shares anecdotes from working with young men and provides insight and suggestions for families and schools on how to support healthy sexual relationships by engaging in conversations around how to support survivors. This episode explores how social-cultural norms impact our beliefs around masculinity and how we, as a society, can work to support males through changing the dialogue and expectations around sexuality.
