Perspectives of Masculinity and the Therapeutic Landscape
Convenor: Michelle Reynolds, Head of Staff Counselling
This conference will explore some of the issues we encounter when we contemplate masculinity and discuss changes that have taken place in our perceptions, expectations, and requirements of masculinity since the Industrial Revolution
How have modern concepts of masculinity evolved? From conventional patriarchal norms and stereotypes to gender diversity and intersectionality, our conference will consider how traditional expectations of masculinity can prevent men from accessing and engaging with much needed mental health support.
Statistics show that men are three times more likely to complete suicide than women, suggesting that there is an urgent need to identify and understand the barriers that stand in the way of men feeling able to access support.
To help promote these discussions we are bringing together a panel of expert speakers who will enable us to think about the intersection of Masculinity and the Therapeutic Landscape.
