The next WPS virtual meeting is on Sunday, May 16, 2021 from 2-3:30 pm. After the hour-long presentation, there will be an open discussion for attendees.

Dr. Robert Pasick will speak on “Men in Therapy.” He draws upon 40 years of experience treating and conducting research with men in individual, marital, and group therapy. He will focus on how therapy is different with men than with women and how this varies over the life cycle. Participants will learn about how to engage men in therapy and how to improve outcomes.

Learning objectives:

  • Participants will be able to list the five key principles to be able to do effective therapy with men. 
  • Participants will be able to describe five ways that doing therapy with men is different than doing therapy with women.
  • Participants will be able to describe and explain the shame/anger cycle in men 


Dr. Pasick has been a practicing psychologist since 1975 when he received his PhD from Harvard. He is the author of 10 books on the topics of men in therapy, pets in the family, and coaching through self-awareness and emotional intelligence. He was a member of the Ann Arbor Center for the Family for over 20 years and is currently a lecturer at the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan.

1 hour of free CE credit is available for MPA members who attend this presentation.
