Our own Executive Clinical Director, Dr. Chantelle Thomas, along with Dr. Marcus R. Earle, Ph.D. and Oren Matteson, led a timely and engaging panel discussion in Chicago on the identity of men and the concept of masculinity in the wake of the #MeToo movement.
Each panelist shared their experience working with men and women during this critical time of change — and generated an engaging conversation striving to broaden perspectives and understanding. They addressed such questions as “How have our views of men and masculinity changed or remained the same?” and “What is changing for women?”
