Through 25 years of work with men in court-related and wellness programs, The Men's Resource Center of West Michigan has found that sexual misconduct/addiction issues can be effectively addressed through a diagnostic paradigm that evaluates men’s experience with toxic male socialization and the psychological sequalae impacting men's healthy development particularly in the areas of emotional intelligence, healthy self-concept and relational capacity. This can cause men to have a propensity for non-relational sexuality including issues with sexual misconduct, addiction, compulsions, and sexual paraphilias. This workshop provides an introduction to gender-specific treatment modalities to both address the need for resocialization of men to challenge their core beliefs regarding masculine identity, emotionality, intimacy, and sexuality while offering them group experiences for accountability and support.
