Description
This introductory workshop describes the integration of a transtheoretical framework with the new psychology of men to provide a model of male-friendly psychotherapy. This model accommodates to men's therapy reluctance by proposing preventive interventions, offering methods to enhance the development of therapeutic alliances, and identifying male-friendly customizations of traditional therapeutic approaches. This therapy model suggests a sequence of therapy intervention levels to maximize men's capacity to benefit from male-friendly psychotherapy at both the individual and systemic levels.
Learning Objectives
1. Increase understanding of the role of gender role strain in the lives of contemporary men.
2. Recognize the inherent conflicts between the traditional masculine role and the expectations of the ideal therapy client.
3. Incorporate understanding of the basic elements of multicultural competence into and ethically appropriate model for intervention with male clients.
4. Customize well-accepted therapy models for work with men and adopt a transtheoretical model for change in therapy with men.
