Course Description:

The Male Box course is a fascinating 4 DVD/online video journey into the lives and minds of boys and men. It describes the history, the principles, and theoretical and practical research concerning how boys and men are viewed in society today. The DVDs/online video discuss the major problems of communication between men and women. It also discusses what causes anxiety in men and why men often end up in treatment programs. By understanding the male brain during early childhood, we can save many boys from becoming victims of unhealthy behaviors as they mature. Relating to men of all ages and on all levels is vital in your practice, and this class encompasses what they need emotionally, biologically, and psychologically. This important lecture teaches how to truly respond in positive ways and appreciate men, so that they in turn may rise to the challenge of being male and being cared for and loved by women and society as a whole.


 

About the Author:

 

A Licensed Professional Counselor, Dennis Morrow has also developed counselor and parent training programs for over 30 years including: Basic Counseling Skills; Advanced Counseling Skills; Parents-in-Charge; Adult Odyssey (impact of race and gender on the therapeutic relationship); Relationships and Addiction; Men and Addiction; and Boys Will Be Men: Gender Specific Treatment for Boys. In 2012 he released The MaleBox: A Journey into a Deeper Understanding of Boys and Men, a DVD designed for use in training counselors/teachers/mentors working with males as well as a Gender-Specific Group Curriculum for working with teenage boys and adult males.

 

In 2009, Dennis was recognized by the University of Portland’s Pamplin School of Business at their 75th Anniversary as one of the “Significant 75” graduates from the Business School and by Portland State University for Outstanding Contributions to the Division of Public Administration. As a working manager himself and a parent of eight adopted children, Dennis tends to focus on concrete strategies and techniques which can be directly applied for even the most complex organizational/human dynamics. A former student described Dennis as “a combination of Dirty Harry, the Dalai Lama, and Mr. Rogers…but I never know who is going to show up next!”



 

Course is recommended for:

 

This course is recommended for health care professionals, especially psychologists, counselors, therapists, social workers, and teachers who seek knowledge about men’s and boy’s issues. It is appropriate for all levels of participants’ knowledge. The course has an emphasis on how men and boys, having been placed in the Male Box by society, cause many to seek addictive behavior, as well as inclusion in gangs to satisfy the belonging they cannot get elsewhere.


 

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize that street gangs are far more effective in working with young men than professionally designed treatment programs.
  • Acknowledge that virtually all of the historical counseling theory and all of the treatment programs in this country today are designed, inadvertently, but clearly designed around female brains and biology.
  •  Demonstrate how there are several factors that cause each gender to experience the world differently, and how those sensory differences cause our brains to perceive reality in dissimilar manners.
  • Recognize the four sides of the Male Box (Feelings/needs, Competition, Responsibility, Sex & Relationships), how they result in loneliness, anger, and rage, and why this all creates shame in a boy or man when they cannot comply with the rules imposed upon them by society.
  • Formulate strategies on how to heal men and boys who have been trapped in the Male Box and have been hurt by their experiences.
  • Discover seven elements of Male Treatment as well as seven steps of the Male Treatment Process that you can use to help the boys and men you work with in the course of your practice.
