GENERAL COURSE DESCRIPTION
Many therapists may be operating from assumptions that may actually make many men uncomfortable in sessions. This course teaches therapists the orientation, specialized clinical skills, and necessary masculine perspective to help engage men in therapy and significantly improve outcomes in both individual and group therapy with male clients. Therapists who accept male clients have an ethical obligation to understand men's specific needs, expectations, and perspectives about therapy, themselves, and their relationships that will affect therapy from initial contact through the various stages of change. Male and female therapists will evoke different transference issues in male clients and will experience different countertransferences as well.
This online course is based on five video presentations from the 2nd Psychotherapy with Men Conference on June 5th, 2010 in Austin, Texas. The first presentation is by Christopher Kilmartin on using humor and drama in men's work. The second lecture is by Holly Sweet on woman therapists working with men. The third lecture is by Melba Vasquez on ethical issues in working with men. The fourth presentation is by Michael Addis on working with depressed men. The fifth lecture is by Frederic Rabinowitz on deepening group therapy with men. Finally the course provides Online Resources on psychology of men and masculinity.
An additional course on the psychology of men is available, titled MEN: Contemporary Theories and Creative Interventions for Male Depression, Aggression & Relationship Issues. This course was authored by Dr. David Wexler and is offered for 7 CE Credits.
