Engaging withdrawn men in therapy is often challenging, particularly when the man is engaged in compulsive sexual behaviors such as affairs and pornography. Therapists will learn to how to engage withdrawers both with their own internal experience and disowned aspects of the self and with their partner. Therapy video will be used to demonstrate the process.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Discuss how to create a safe environment for withdrawn men in couple therapy.
  2. Describe an oral attachment history to identify and move through emotional blocks. 
  3. Explain how to help withdrawn men access, identify with, value, and integrate disowned needs and aspects of self.
