“Masculinity, Feelings, and ED: An exploration in working with male clients
struggling with an eating disorder "
Overview: Toughness, independence, emotional control, and logic; these are words often used in society to describe men. The National Institute of Mental Health suggests that roughly 1,000,000 men and boys suffer from eating disorders. In this day and age young men are still challenged with the complexities of "Masculinity". Such as, "I am not a normal guy; I have pretty good emotional intelligence." While this is a response we are hearing more and more from men in treatment, and is a step in the right direction, it is still a damaging idea. This lecture will focus on these complexities as they apply to working with men in treatment, emotional anorexia in men, and how as clinicians we can adjust our approach to working with males in a treatment setting.
