Trainee and qualified counsellors and psychotherapists

Course Outline

How do you think about the male psyche in your work? During this workshop ‘Working with the Male Psyche’ John will present a model of the male psyche viewed through a cultural lens.  Often associated in working therapeutically with men are anger, aggression, overthinking and a perception of lack of feelings or emotion.

Time will also be given for plenary discussion on the topic of working psychotherapeutically with men.

Aim

To invite participants to consider the structure of the male psyche in their work with men.

Learning Outcomes

  • State examples of the crisis in men’s health
  • Cite a model of the male psyche
  • Identify their own countertransference when working with a man
  • Describe the importance of the role of the father/other
  • Explain the concept of the father archetype
  • Recognise how their theories/modalities consider the father/other and the role of the father/other

Course Structure

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.
