“Masculinity & Mental Health—Impact on Family: Engaging an Ethical Practice Framework”

Presented by Dr. Adam McCormick 

This workshop will explore the issue of  masculinity and its impact on the behaviors, dynamics, and relationships of boys and men. Specific attention will be given to the ways in which unhealthy masculinity is socialized and reinforced throughout childhood and adolescence, and its lasting impact into adulthood. The presentation will explore the relationship between unhealthy masculinity and issues such as dating violence, sexual violence, mass school violence, risky sex, and mental illness. Discussion will address key themes related to power, control and privilege and ways in which social workers can address these dynamics while maintaining ethical standards. 

Learning Objectives:

1) Participants will increase their understanding of masculinity and how it is constructed and developed in the lives of boys and men;
2) Participants will explore the impact that masculinity has on major issues impacting clients including childhood trauma, dating violence, physical violence, risky sex and risky substance abuse;
3) Participants will familiarize themselves with key ideas that relate to the use of control and power as a manifestation of masculinity;

4) Participants will examine strategies for fostering healthy and transformative masculinities with boys and men while maintaining ethical standards.
