Therapy with men can present special challenges. Many men enter therapy because something or someone—a concerned partner or even a court order—has pushed them to seek help. Even if a man enters therapy on his own, his experience there may be different from that of a female client, as many men are socialized to fear core components of the therapeutic process: the language of feelings, the disclosure of vulnerability, and the admission of dependency needs. The vignettes on this video have been carefully selected by Matt Englar-Carlson, an expert on men and masculinity, to stimulate discussion of ways to engage men in therapeutic settings.
