Boys will by Boys: Understanding the Impact of Child Maltreatment and Family Violence on the Sexual, Reproductive, and Parenting Behaviors of Young Men

Publish Date:

Description: 

This paper concerns itself with the impact of physical, sexual, and psychological abuse, and exposure to family violence on the sexual, reproductive, and parenting behaviors of young men. Healthy Teen Network believes it is time to expand our thinking with regard to males and violence, to let go of outdated and harmful stereotypes and misperceptions about masculinity and male gender identity, and to begin to work toward a society that recognizes young men’s real potential as agents of sexual, reproductive, and public health. With this paper, Healthy Teen Network hopes to educate and stimulate further discussion among the people often challenged by these issues, including practitioners, policymakers, advocates, and educators.
