Lunch 'n Learns with Matt Burton

Men experience physical trauma. Did you know that about 30% of adult men were physically abused as children? Physical abuse can not only inflict pain and harm, but it can be used to dominate and control or humiliate and degrade. The damage caused from physical abuse does not stop when the physical wounds heal. Join Matt as he shares practically and experientially physical trauma's impact on men and boys, on others, and things that can help us heal.
