“ So this is where all the magic happens.” This was the statement that a new client loudly proclaimed as he walked into my office for the first time. I laughed and responded, “Absolutely!” In truth, individual therapy does not involve “magic”. Atherapist has the profound opportunity to work with an individual to address whatever problems they a client is dealing with at the time. It is a relationship built on trust and maintained through knowledge, skill, and the ability to achieve results.
“People need people – for initial and for continued survival, for socialization, for the pursuit of satisfaction. No one – not the dying, not the outcast, not the mighty – transcends the need for human contact.- Irvin Yalom
Group therapy is the opportunity for men and boys to share, learn, and grow together. Often, men and boys don’t feel like they can talk to other males about their problems because they feel like they will be judged or shamed. In group therapy, men and boys break this cycle of and learn skills to listen, support, and hold each other accountable.
Research, Evaluation & Training
- Research- One of the most important aspects of Male Behavioral Health is our Research services. We believe that “honest, meticulous, and morally alert” research on the mental health needs of men and boys is essential to informing policy decision and addressing the changing nature of society.
- Evaluation – Male Behavioral Health acknowledges the need to identify strategies and interventions that are effective in addressing the mental health challenges of men and boys. As a result, Male Behavioral Health emphasizes evidence-based research and program evaluation to identify best practices with men and boys.
- Trainings- We strongly support professionals who seek to develop competencies when working with men and boys. At MBH, we help professionals to become aware of their own gender-role socialization process, to evaluate the social factors that influence the lives of men and boys, and to acquire new skills to bring about change.
