Counselling processes such as focusing on problems or even exploring feelings can invoke shame and defensiveness in some men... And damage the therapeutic connection.

But with the right approach, therapy and healthy functional masculinity can coexist. More than that, therapy can enhance and strengthen masculinity instead of undermining it.

Now, in this engaging and eye-opening live training Nathan Beel BA (Coun), Grad Dip (Coun), MCoun, PhD, will reveal how to adapt your approach to enhance treatment engagement and effectiveness with men so you can get faster results! You’ll discover how to:

  • Develop engagement strategies specifically customised for men 
  • Identify assessment risks and common issues that men struggle with
  • Become a male gender-sensitive therapist
  • And more!

You’ll walk away with the fundamental knowledge, attitudes, and skills to effectively work with men, get lasting results, and transform your practice.
