THIS IS NOT A COMIC BOOK! THIS IS A RESEARCH BASED GUIDE FOR MALE SURVIVORS.
Heroes, Villains, and Healing is a guide to help male survivors of childhood sexual abuse understand and heal from the trauma of their past using DC Comic Book superheroes and villains.

This helpful book is divided into three parts. The first is “Heroes,” which explains how some coping strategies of male survivors are similar to the archetypes of such DC superheroes as Superman, Batman, and the Flash.

The second part, “Villains,” examines how other coping strategies may not be as positive, having traits and attitudes of villains such as Lex Luthor and the Joker.

“Healing” is the final part, which explains how striving to live the life of a hero or a villain cannot be sustainable. To truly heal from childhood sexual abuse means working through the stages of healing and receiving help from a therapist or counselor. This final section includes writing exercises and examples that help male survivors know they are not alone, as they come to terms with their abuse and heal from past trauma.


The book was written to help male survivors open up about their abuse, seek help, and stop suppressing their trauma through drug and alcohol abuse, or suicide.

I have been a voice for male survivors through the speakers bureau of RAINN, interviews on NPR, in the Washington City Paper, and Baltimore Post-Examiner. I have done signings for my memoir and speaking engagements in public and private settings such as Red Emma’s in Baltimore, Maryland. As a public educator in Baltimore City and graduate of Johns Hopkins School of Education I know the value of informing others to prevent the cycle of abuse. It is my goal to get this guide into the hands of as many professionals, survivors, and partners who support male survivors everyday to help others and stop childhood sexual abuse.
