My interest in working with adult male survivors of sexual abuse Kelli Palfy

In 2006 I was an RCMP officer. I was working in the Integrated Child Sexual Exploitation (ICE) Unit of the Behavioural Sciences Group. I was sent to Ottawa for specialized training where guest speaker Sheldon Kennedy spoke to us about the abuse he suffered under Coach Graham James (this is public info also shared in his book). He stated that he believed certain parents suspected or knew he was being abused, but did nothing, likely out of fear of disrupting their own child’s hockey career. 

He also spoke of why he never said anything to anyone: a) in part because he didn’t want to disappoint his parents who were grateful he’d gotten the opportunities he had; b) he did not want to be labelled as homosexual, c) he feared it may end his hockey career…etc.

Do you lie in bed awake for more than 20 minutes begging for sleep to come?

If the answer is yes...get up out of bed and go do something else! Do something fun, but not too emotionally or physically stimulating. Sleep experts tell us that it is better to get out of your bed, than to 'condition' your bed to become a place where you go to fear sleep. Don’t try go back to bed for at least half an hour...This should help you get more sleep in the long run. Having nightmares? I can help....come see me
