Orthodox Masculinity and the Therapeutic Encounter -

Working affirmatively with male clients.

About the event:

Every part of our lives, whether we are aware of it or not, is touched by gender identity and the cultural and contextual meanings made of it. Over the last century, and in the last fifty years in particular, we have seen traditional gender roles gradually being challenged and dismantled in Western cultures as successive feminist and LGBTQ+ campaigns for rights, equality and liberation have questioned and troubled taken-for-granted patriarchal social structures.

In these turbulent times for gender politics in general and masculinities in particular, this 3-part seminar looks at the ways in which gender, and the unequal distribution of power and privilege connected with it, intersect in the therapeutic encounter. We unpack contemporary cultural and psychological dilemmas for men and how they may inform the therapeutic process and content with the aim of building an affirmative practice for those working with men and with those touched by the issues that affect the men in their lives.
