Men in Therapy Research Team

The Men in Therapy Research Team is co-led by Drs. Strohmer and Leierer, and focuses on person-environment issues including Holland Code identification, counseling expectations, willingness to seek counseling, self-efficacy, and other variables which make the therapeutic environment either conducive or non-conducive to participation by males. Research suggests that men are less likely to seek out and participate in therapy, unlikely to admit to needing counseling assistance, hold lower expectations for the therapeutic experience, and hold high expectations for the competence and performance of the therapist. This research team hopes to gain a better understanding of these phenomena and ways in which the therapeutic environment, education of potential male clients, and training of therapists might be altered to make therapy a more inviting and useful option for men. Additional research topics within this general area are of interest and encouraged by the team leaders.
