Working with Male Psyche_2

We will begin by looking at the scale of the hidden crisis in men's mental health before moving onto explore their 'psyche'.

We will begin by looking at the scale of the hidden crisis in men's mental health before moving onto explore just what we mean by the term 'psyche'. This will lead us into discussion around how we each think about the male psyche and what we typically think of as forming parts of the male psyche.

We will examine the male psyche through a model of culture, adapted from Pearl Drego's concept of the Cultural Parent. Breaks will be naturally structured throughout the day. Working in a mix of plenary and triad groups the workshop will be very much experientially based.

We will examine just what is it like working with a man. Is there a difference in the transferential domain? Participants are encouraged to bring their own experiences of working with men, as we examine this through the lens of the male psyche cultural model.
