Position Focus:

At least one in six men is sexually abused before their 18th birthday, and this number rises to one in four across their lifespan. Sexual and gender minority (SGM) men are exposed to traumatic events, particularly sexual violence, at even higher rates. SGM males suffer a host of negative mental health consequences from sexual abuse, including posttraumatic stress disorder, substance abuse and dependence, depression, anxiety, and suicidal behavior. They also experience a number of significant difficulties associated with minority stress, such as low self-esteem, sexual identity formation disturbances, and difficulties forming healthy adult intimate relationships. The cumulative impact of sexual abuse, in conjunction with individuals' SGM status, also appears to result in higher rates of trauma re-victimization, including anti-gay violence and discrimination. Although SGM male survivors suffer significant psychological distress and disorder, they typically do not seek formal mental health treatment or take, on average, decades to do so. This study will investigate two different psychotherapies, delivered online by peer specialists with shared lived experience, to see if we can facilitate formal entry into mental health services. Increasing SGM male sexual abuse survivors' entry into mental health services may help to address an important healthy disparity by alleviating psychiatric distress, increasing quality of life, and helping these men get the treatment they need and deserve. Given the prevalence of sexual trauma in the lives of men, and its well-documented connection to mental and physical health disorders, facilitating their entry into formal mental health services is imperative. In collaboration with MaleSurvivor, a non-profit trauma survivor organization that provides resources to male abuse survivors and their loved ones, we will successfully recruit and retain participants, establish a community-based research advisory board to facilitate the identification and enlistment of participants, and work to develop plans to share the study progress and results in formats most useful to the different communities involved, including SGM participants, other trauma survivors, and SGM populations as well as their families.

This position is for a full-time project manager for a randomized controlled trial. The study is social-behavioral in nature. The intervention is being conducted solely online and therefore a project manager with experience and comfort using online platforms is necessary. The project manager will be responsible for the daily management of the study's progress and will work directly under the Principal Investigator (PI) to ensure all project deliverables are met. The project manager will coordinate a variety of activities (e.g., in-person training, online and in-person meetings, telephone screening) and support the project team.

The project manager will take primary responsibility for recruiting participants and will carry out research within the scope of the established study protocol. The project manager will oversee and ensure the accuracy and completeness of data collected by creating and maintaining databases and tracking sheets.

Under the direction of the Principal Investigator (PI), this position will manage a PCORI funded 3-year social-behavioral randomized controlled trial. Responsibilities include management of project monitoring, data use agreements (DUAs), Human Investigation Committee (HIC)/Institutional Review Board (IRB) protocols, and database management. The position will include providing logistical support during the data collection phase of the study, entering data under the supervision of the PI, tracking the progress of the study and reporting to the PI.

Expected length of position is 3-4 years.

Preferred Education, Experience and Skills:

Master's in psychology or related social science and at least 2 yrs experience or a Bachelor's and 3-4 years of exp. Experience with traumatic stress. Exp. working with sexual assault victims or with sexual and gender minority men. Exp. with peer to peer treatment. Familiarity with online platforms such as Zoom. Exp. managing a social-behavioral study protocol.
