These damaging expectations of masculinity are ruining your sessions, causing many male clients to bottle up the shame of past traumas, struggle to be vulnerable and open in therapy, and labor to leave emotion numbing drugs behind. It can make therapeutic progress seem impossible and leave you frustrated, questioning your competence, and feeling powerless when nothing you try seems to work.

No matter your own gender, this essential program will give you exactly what you need to: • Keep male clients from leaving treatment • Experience more productive sessions with men who struggle with “talk” therapy • Create greater openness in sessions with tips to overcome male shame and stigma • Add value to the clinical techniques you already use for trauma and addiction work Sign up today and experience new levels of therapeutic success with the guidance and tailored approaches you need to meet the needs of men in therapy! Objectives: • Assess how male roles and stereotypes are formed from society, culture, and family roles. • Analyze how self-esteem, self-worth, and self-efficacy are impacted through these roles and lead to maladaptive coping. • Determine how stereotyped behaviors drive rigid, addictive tendencies and develop solutions to increase willingness to change while keeping integrity in tact. • Evaluate the clinical research related to suicide, substance abuse and gender differences. • Integrate skills to help men increase their voice and choice since they are often the ‘forgotten, silent sufferers’ as it pertains to trauma. • Utilize reframing interventions, cognitive restructuring and distress tolerance techniques that cultivate and demonstrate the importance of vulnerability and intimacy in their lives.
