Effective Psychotherapy With MenStreaming Video - 2014
Men often seek psychotherapy only as a last resort--the idea of talking about their feelings to resolve problems is not on the agenda. If they do seek help, they often avoid expressing their emotions due to fear, anxiety or learned ways of relating, making progress difficult and dropout more likely. In this dramatic recreation of key moments in a 12-session course of therapy with Raymond, a man who at mid-life cannot feel excitement at the prospect of his impending fatherhood, Dr. Levant demonstrates an unconventional, yet very effective approach to working with men. At first he helps Raymond understand the socio-cultural forces that restrict the emotional lives of men, and in doing so creates a strong therapeutic bond. Then he gradually helps Raymond experience and appreciate the breadth and richness of his emotions. With these fuller resources at his disposal, Raymond is able to use Dr. Levant's support to make rapid and meaningful changes in his life.
