PROGRAM: The rise of the #MeToo movement has generated a seismic shift in how we view sexual harassment and other once overlooked issues in the relationships between men and women. This presentation will explore ways to distinguish and address transgressions that range from the truly violent to the subtly bullying to the simply gross and juvenile. The focus will be on helping men who offend or are confused, plus offering strength-based strategies to help women confront sexual misconduct in personal, academic and professional settings. There will be a special emphasis on couples whose relationship and sexual dynamics have been impacted by #MeToo histories, with strategies that help each partner understand how #MeToo issues are undermining their relationship.

  • Develop clear strategies for confronting male entitlement in a way that actually gets through to men.
  • Explain how to help men examine ways in which they may have unknowingly “crossed the line” with women in their lives.
  • Explore the confusion and paralysis that many survivors of sexual harassment experience to assess how best to help them heal and move forward.
  • Help bridge the gap in couples when histories of sexual harassment and sexual assault are affecting their relationship.
  • Discover how to help couples examine gender roles and expectations to improve clinical outcomes.
