Tonight's special guest is Dr Kelli Palfy from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, the author of a new book, 'Men Too: Unspoken Truths About Male Sexual Abuse', which is available through Amazon. Kelli is a speaker and a registered psychologist at Peaks & Valleys Psychology. She began her professional career working in adult and youth corrections, where she noticed a disproportionate number of males in the system. After becoming an RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) officer, she took an interest in investigating sex crimes and went on to specialize in sex crimes committed against children internationally. As she combed through video evidence, she witnessed first-hand the grooming tactics commonly used by sophisticated pedophiles. After retiring from the RCMP, Kelli obtained her Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Alberta. She conducted her doctoral research on the reasons why males don’t commonly disclose sexual abuse. Kelli is now a trained trauma therapist and public speaker on the topic of male abuse. In her words, “I currently run a small private practice where I work with male survivors of sexual abuse, first responders, and couples using an Emotion-Focused and Cognitive Behavioral Approach, plus Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).” It's always a part of NAASCA's mission to reach and serve every type of child abuse victim, including men. Males who involve themselves with us, especially those who tell their stories, are always appreciated. Welcome, Dr. Kelli, to the NAASCA family.
