Breaking the Silence of Male Trauma Survivors

Beavers, Foxes and Grizzly Bears ... Oh, and Cheetahs, Fish and Sloths Too: A Book About Animals, People and Behavior in the Workplace

This is a book about organizational leadership; specifically, how to support employees' needs and achieve a good fit in the workplace. The book contains expert opinion to support ideas related to leadership. It also uses a 9 year-old boy's imagination of what work life should be through the creation of a new organizational theory: Binary Responsibility. The theory is articulated through the introduction of various animal characters and the tale of Billy Beaver, a Team Leader at Backwoods Builders with a career dilemma.


This book tells the story of five interventionists who work the streets of some of Los Angeles’ toughest neighborhoods.  It articulates who they were and how they got to be who they are now. Each story has similarities and differences but each provides a close-up of a life most of us only see through the lens of Hollywood fantasy.  This book is the reality behind that fantasy.  It gives credit for the hard, dangerous and usually unsung work each of these individuals do. 


You have heard of the #MeToo movement. But have you heard of the #MenToo movement? Little is known about male trauma and Dr. Debra Warner explains that men are also suffering sexual assault. Dr. Debra Warner is a leading forensic psychologist, trauma expert, author, and speaker who specializes in male trauma. She is the spouse of a male survivor and authored “His History, Her Story, a Survival Guide for Spouses of Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse and Trauma.” She has devoted her professional efforts to helping men and their loved ones confront and conquer their long term effects of trauma on the male psyche. She frequently addresses issues related to the #MenToo movement, challenges masculinity stereotypes, and works to dismantle stigmas related to male trauma. She currently is a professor at the Los Angeles campus of the Chicago School of Professional Psychology’s Psy.D. in Clinical Forensic Psychology, and a sought-out expert witness, psychological evaluator, and consultant. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
