Enhancing Clinical Mastery in Engaging & Serving Male Clients 

This class will address the psychotherapist’s use of language and of self, as well as gender-based perspectives and best practices in connecting, assessing, and treating male clients of all ages.  We will also examine the roles male and female therapists play with male clients and how the therapist can enhance the clinical art of engaging, communicating and relating toward excellent therapy outcomes.  Effectively dealing with male clients who demonstrate narcissistic, manipulative, and overly sexualized behaviors also will be addressed. Case material will be used to support concepts presented, and considerations will be discussed regarding if, when, and how to introduce this work to clients.
