Men's Group

SUMMARY

Being a strong (and caring) male is difficult work.  This series will focus on men finding the balance between asserting their preferences and being in intimate relationships.  It’s ideal for men who are successful professionally and in other area but who often feel confused and frustrated in their primary partnership.  If you’re a guy who…

feels a need to watch for your partner’s reaction when you want to state your mind, or

finds yourself bracing for your wife’s intense emotion, or

carefully chooses what to say so as not to elicit strong feelings in others, or

once you’ve hit your breaking point, yells what you really think because you can’t take it any longer, or

feels resentment that others seem to get what they want and need, why not you?

…this group is for you.

OBJECTIVES

You will learn, practice and sharpen the following skills:

  • Assertiveness (not passivity or aggression)
  • Developing a strong sense of self (liking yourself just as you are)
  • Stepping into your leadership potential (provide for, protect, and guide those you love)
  • Improving your sex life
  • Embracing your masculinity and unique talents
  • Working through conflict and differences of opinion
  • Differentiate being caring from being a chronic problem-solver
  • Form meaningful relationships with other men

This eight-session program will help you deepen your understanding of your challenges, come to know and be supported by other men who are in similar situations, and find solutions.

TESTIMONIALS: 

Here’s what men who have been in my groups before have said about the experience:
"Digesting and understanding why I avoid conflict has been on my mind lately and this section certainly helped me confront this trait in myself."
"The ability to share and the vulnerability of the men has been refreshing."
"It is valuable to share experiences with other guys that are similar to me in the…traits. While we come from different experiences, we are able to relate to each other."
