This workshop explores the complex and sometimes toxic overlap between male socialization, sexuality, and intimacy. Men’s voracious and uncontrollable sexual appetites are legendary. Stories about men’s inability to commit, their philandering, sexist ideas, and homophobic behavior abound. Porn seems to be many men’s best friend. But what happens when you look a little more closely and attempt to understand some of the driving forces behind the behavior? A totally different picture emerges and with that a mandate for a new way of providing services.
Dan Griffin, M.A., is an internationally recognized author, thought leader, and expert on men’s relationships and masculinity. Griffin’s book, A Man’s Way through Relationships, is the first book written specifically to help men create healthy relationships while navigating the challenges of the “Man Rules™,” those ideas men internalize at very young ages about how to be real boys and men. In 2015, Dan was honored to be named a Senior Fellow at the world renowned leader for treating addiction and trauma, The Meadows. Griffin’s professional background includes over two decades in the mental health and addictions field. He is also the author of A Man’s Way through the Twelve Steps, the first trauma-informed book to take a holistic look at men’s sobriety. He co-authored Helping Men Recover, the first comprehensive gender-responsive and trauma-informed curriculum for addiction and mental health professionals. Griffin earned a Master’s degree in Sociology from the University of Kansas where his graduate work was the first qualitative study centered on the social construction of masculinity in the culture of Alcoholics Anonymous.
