In Episode 16 of Men Healing podcast, I had the pleasure to interview Dr. Howard Fradkin, co-founder of Male Survivor and co-chair of the wonderful Weekends of Recovery program. We discuss his experience with the 200 Men Oprah Shows and his new book that will be released in Autumn 2012, 'Joining Forces: Empowering Male Survivors to Thrive'. Dr. Fradkin has some excellent things to say and great words of encouragement for listeners. He also provides some good info for men looking for growth and healing opportunities. Thanks for listening and your support!

In Episode 15 of the Men Healing podcast, I interview John, from Toronto, Canada, a fellow male survivor I met through our men's support group. He speaks openly about his abuse experience and how a third person walked in and witnessed it happening, but did quite the opposite to what they should have done. We also discuss his coping mechanism of constantly shutting down and the shame that he is successfully letting go of. Thank you for listening.

Thanks, Jamie
