Key approaches to working with men
Current UK statistics show that both prison and suicide rates for men are high. Young men are falling behind in secondary education and porn addiction is described as a 21st century epidemic. As therapists working with men in different pockets of society, how do we reflect on this? What can we do to reduce these statistics and what effective strategies can we employ?
This webcast series, Men and Therapy - key approaches to working with men, explores a number of key topics that men bring to therapy from shame, depression and acting out to violence, vulnerability and porn addiction.
