Men who have experienced trauma after their partner has an abortion have often struggled to find help, both in terms of the quality of treatment and from their hesitation to seek help through counseling. Our guest on today's show, Licensed Counselor, Greg Hasek, speaks about his personal trauma after his partner got an abortion and what lead him to begin studying and treating men suffering with trauma from abortion and sexual addiction. He also shares why he believes music is such a potent tool for men experiencing trauma.

Greg helps us understand what men often go through when they visit an abortion clinic with their partner. He breaks down why this experience can create a great level of trauma in men, and also how things like sexual addiction can feed into this trauma further. He also explains how to overcome the stereotype in men that seeking counseling is a sign of weakness and how they can begin to view it as a method of strength that helps them to step into who they are called to be.
