Dr. Ed Adams and APA Division 51 Conference in the News

Apr, 2018

Dr. Edward Adams ('79), a GSAPP alumn and current American Psychological Association (APA) Division 51 president,  facilitated a workshop, "Facing the Issues: Masculinities in Research and Practice,” at the APA's Society for the Psychological Study of Men and Masculinity, Division 51 conference, held at Rutgers University in March. The goal of this conference was to provide an opportunity for mental health professionals to integrate into practice many important dynamics involved in the effective psychological treatment of men and boys. Research indicates that too often men do not seek out professionals for help and often do not stay in psychotherapy long enough to effect significant change. In addition, few colleges and universities offer coursework and/or applied experiences designed to train students and working professionals to meet the specific needs of men and boys receiving psychotherapy or other mental health services.
