He led the training of thousands of front-line workers and clinicians on male trauma, black male trauma, the impacts of male trauma on the family, male trauma and corrections, the impact of male trauma on women, and has helped men and their partners heal from the impacts of pornography addiction, infidelity/affairs, and intimacy anorexia®.

Lunch 'n Learns with Matt Burton

Men experience rejection, abandonment, feelings of inadequacy, and loss. These experiences can leave crater sized holes in us. The brokenness left by divorce, the physical and emotional pain caused by intimate partner abuse, the sting of rejection and abandonment, and the devastation suicide leaves behind are some examples of ways we can experience this. Join Matt as he shares practically and experientially about their impact and strategies to get better.
