Cultural Socialization of Men and Boys: Understanding masculine identity and its clinical impact.
Timothy A. Wienecke, MA, LPC, LAC
Empowered Change: Counseling & Education P.C
Men are starting to use clinical services more and more. Developing an understanding of manhood in American culture and its impact on our male-identified clients is key to providing them competent, effective care. This training will provide a history of how our culture has defined manhood, how that ideal has been enforced, and explore how manhood often impacts our clinical work.
• Explore assumptions and biases
• Gain an understanding of the history of manhood in American culture
• Learn common strengths and challenges of male-identified clients
• Increase awareness of common pitfalls working with men and how to address them
Lunch will be provided.
