What is a Men’s Processing Group?

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.

How does it work?

The bi-weekly meetings of the Men’s Processing Group will provide a safe space to facilitate discussion about problems each participant may be facing and offer other participants the chance to speak to them or offer advice/solutions. The group facilitator will help guide the conversation and also teach skills that will help participants better process their emotions and experiences.

The meetings will cover the following topics:

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

The Men’s Processing Group will be facilitated by:
