About the Presentation:

Women have courageously examined their roles and the limitations placed upon their souls.   Similarly, men need to examine the presuppositions and limitations which govern their lives. In this virtual talk, James Hollis, Ph.D. will explore the range of male definitions, the often-unconscious relationship to mother and father and the role which fear plays in men’s lives, as well as why doing therapy with men may be so difficult, presenting leading questions that can open a man up to exploration. This complimentary talk will offer clinicians the option of earning 1 Continuing Education credit upon successful completion of the course evaluation at the conclusion of the presentation.
