How to Help Boys Survive Sexual Abuse with Coach and Trainer Anthony Sgherza

We dedicate this episode to the parents of boy.

Our culture tells boys to “toughen up… and…don’t cry.”  So when boys encounter sexual abuse they believe it shows weakness to speak out and talk about their suffering.

On this episode Anthony Sgherza, athletic trainer and coach discusses:

  • The complexity associated with the term sex abuse survivor;
  • How to move in a world where survivors are seen as “damaged”
  • an insider's perspective on the positive changes being made by coaches and sporting organizations.

Anthony Sgherza currently serves as strength coach and athletic trainer at XIP Training Systems.  He most recently served as exercise and sport science program director and professor of instruction in the Department of Kinesiology at Temple University 2017 – 2020.  Anthony also worked at NYU as a physical therapist and athletic trainer.
