On Friday, July 17, 2015 several NCFM members spoke at the first SCRIPT Conference devoted to stigma associated with male victims of sexual assault and abuse. This is the first conference of which we are aware given over to male victims and survivors. Some of the presentations were captured on video. Links to two of the videos are below and they are well worth watching.

The conference was held next to Union Station at the California Endowment Conference Center.

NCFM Adviser Michael Conzachi, retired homicide investigator, Army Veteran, and Board Member International Support Network for Alienated Families (ISNAF). Michael conducted a session about parental alienation and/or discrimination against men in the military about sexual assault and domestic violence.

NCFM Vice-President Marc Angelucci, Esq. Marc is a distinguished attorney who won landmark cases against domestic violence shelters for refusing to give services to abused men. He won landmark paternity fraud case as well.  Marc gave a presentation about domestic violence and the law, which you can watch here.

The President of NCFM Carolinas flew in from North Carolina to give a presentation about the College Accountability and Safety Act and the war on men on college campuses.

Men’s Health Network Stanley Green, Director Intimate Partner Violence Prevention facilitated a session about male victims of intimate partner violence and the “System’s” refusal to recognize them.

Martin Fiebert, Ph.D, professor at California State University Long Beach, maintains the largest scientifically based research bibliography on the planet about male victims of domestic violence. You can watch the video here of his presentation, except for the first 15 minutes which are missing due to a technical problem. (Click on the picture above or here to watch the video)

In addition, me, NCFM President Harry Crouch, well I gave a colorful PowerPoint presentation about male victimization in general which covers a range of topics. I am told I moved around to much to film. Hmm…

NCFM Adviser Julie Brand introduced me to organizer; Debra Warner, Ph.D. Dr. Warner said they were looking for presenters who could think outside the box. That’s us and we hope to be working with Dr. Warner to expand the next SCRIPT conference. We consider this one a historic event and well worth the effort.

A huge thank you goes to Dr. Warner. She took an equally huge chance staging this conference since the topics are generally taboo in women related industries, government and the media.

Special thanks to NCFM members Fred  Sottile and Ray Blumhorst for videoing the sessions. Also to Ray for preparing the videos for the Internet and uploading them to our NCFM television station.

National Coalition for MenMore conferences about male victims are needed.

Male victims are human too…
