In-Person Men’s Group

Men’s Processing Group at Southlake

Experience the life-changing program backed by evidence from Dr. John Gottman that has revolutionized the way we understand, repair, and strengthen marriages.

Program Overview

Men are conditioned to manage life stressors alone and suppress their emotions. They have special experiences and expectations based on society, family, and work. The purpose of a Men’s Processing Group is to come together from all different life roles and backgrounds to share stories, find and give support, create a sense of fellowship, and understand that many struggles experienced personally are the same for men universally.

Topics Discussed

There is no limit to the issues that can be addressed and discussed within a Men’s Processing Group. The most typical topics we cover are:

  • Adjusting to Life After the Pandemic
  • Relationships and Sex
  • Parenting
  • Communication
  • Emotional Regulation
  • Career/Finances

You are not required to share, but discussion is encouraged. If you find comfort in simply listening, that is okay too. We want to provide a space for you to feel comfortable and supported, regardless of if you share or not.
