Clinical Treatment of Men: Mission (Im)possible?

May 18, 2013 09:00am -
May 18, 2013 12:00pm

Event Description

Joseph Pereira, MSW and Dennis A. Balcom, MSW, instructors

Men come to treatment when something important is not working in their lives.  Crises related to specific events as well as lifestyle issues precipitate entering treatment.  They often come under duress or at the behest of important people in their lives.  They often present with emotions highlighted by anger, shame and sadness.  This program will address gender socialization and attachment and how this knowledge can assist us in providing therapy that is congruent with men’s core identities.  Different experiences of treating men related to the gender of the therapist will also be explored.  Ideas of effective and preferred treatment for men, beginning will alliance building, containment and goal setting will be a focus of the workshop.

Upon completion of the program the student will be able to:

·     Explain how male socialization impacts on the use of psychotherapy.

·      Identify at least 3 principles of effective treatment with men.

·      Explore how your own experience treating men impacts on the therapeutic alliance.
