    The Liberating Power of Compassion and Connection

    Presented by:

    Edward M. Adams, PsyD

    Dr. Adams is in private practice in Lambertville NJ where he focuses on the treatment of men.  He is the co-author of two books focused on men and masculinity and is past president of Division 51 (Men and Masculinities) of APA.  In 2013 he received the Practitioner of the Year award from Division 51.  Thirty years ago he founded Men Mentoring Men a non-profit organization helping men live liberating lives.   


    “Am I supposed to be emotionally distant or close?  How should I relate to women without fear of being seen as a creepy guy?  How a I feel good about myself when men are labeled as toxic?  This confusion is unsettling to men. But this flux offers an opportunity to broaden our CONFINED ideas of male behavior and create new possibilities of benefit to men and women.  This can be done by weaving compassionate behavior and larger, deeper and more meaningful connections into our male identity.       


    Learning Objectives:  By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

1.         Identify Confined Masculinity and how it often restricts and harms men and women.
2.         Describe how a Liberating Masculinity paradigm positively impacts men and women.
3.         Define ways to help men incorporate compassion and connection into their daily lives.
