Event description

Description

Re-visioning masculinity and male sexualities: Helping male (and female) clients imagine new meanings in men’s relationship to themselves and others.

Presented by Robert Heasley, PhD, LMFT

Shifting cultural expectations for males around the meaning of masculinity as well as sexual identity has implications for anyone who identifies as male. While much of society continues to raise boys to “be boys,” masculinity as well as sexuality is witnessing an emerging shift from the mechanical to the sensual masculine, from the rigid to the fluid experience of sexuality. This change is accompanied by changes in expectations and experience, and the need for therapists, counselors and others working with men and boys to understand the challenges and opportunities of embracing an emerging, “new” menu of ways to be sexual and to be male.  Robert Heasley draws on his clinical work with boys and men, on his research on emotional intimacy and male friendships, as well as his studies of “differently straight males” – males who fit outside the box of traditional masculinity and heterosexuality, to address implications for clinical practice.
