SCA May 2017 Meeting


Increasing Effectiveness in Psychotherapy with Men

Jordan Wolfe, M.A.

 May 19th, 2017

“Have you ever wondered if you could be more effective (and confident) in your therapeutic work with men?”

 “Does working successfully with men require different competencies than working with women?”

“Are you curious what “men’s work” even is (from a male therapist’s perspective?”
 
As more and more men seek out psychotherapy for the first (or second, or third…) time, there is a growing need for interested therapists to develop greater awareness of the particular relational styles, needs, and challenges that often accompany men in therapy. 

As counterintuitive as it may be that men are a bonafide “niche population,” developing a culturally aware, male-positive approach helps engage clients more effectively, deepens the therapeutic process, and facilitates the integration of therapeutic experiences beyond the clinical frame.

In this presentation you’ll develop a more solid understanding of what “men’s work” actually is; learn what attitudes, knowledge, understandings, and skills support successful work with men; and reflect on your own therapeutic work through identifying your key challenges, strengths, and intentions in the therapy room. Presentation will involve lecture, question-and-answer, live role-play, and hand-outs.

Bio: Jordan Wolfe is a psychotherapist in private practice in Seattle who specializes in working with men. He's also a father, certified Yoga teacher, and former boxing coach, Buddhist monk, Army intelligence analyst, carpenter and musician. He has a Master's in Integral Counseling Psychology and is an AGPA Certified Group Psychotherapist, working primarily with a somatic, relational, psychodynamic approach.
