Therapy with Men
Framing Therapy as a Resource, Common Themes, and Exploring Feelings as a Communication Tool
Dr. Becky Beaton Interviews Kyle Keane, LPC in this video about his therapeutic work with Men. They discuss how Kyle frames therapy for men in order to get them to buy-in to the process. Kyle discusses his "Three Step Approach" to therapy in order to really absorb what the client discusses during session, process that information between sessions, and thoughtfully think about what they want to get out of the next session. Kyle goes on to discuss the frequent concerns he sees during sessions with men as they relate to different life stages. Next, Dr. Beaton asks Kyle a lot of questions about men and feelings, and Kyle discusses how he frames feelings as a communication tool and invites men to try on different options in session where it is safe and there aren't any consequences for just exploring. Lastly, Kyle discusses a few other specific areas he sees men often grapple with: taking care of their health and becoming comfortable with taking an antidepressant for awhile if needed.
