Facing the Issues: Masculinities in Research and Practice
March 24 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
The world has taken notice that most mass shootings are carried out by men and the “Me Too” movement has brought the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment into the limelight. An APA/Rutgers University conference on March 24 takes on the question, “What does it mean to be a man or boy in today’s society?”
To offer insights on the current masculinity crisis, Rutgers University and the American Psychological Association Division 51 have partnered to address men who may feel adrift and “left out” of a changing social landscape and how men have an opportunity for growth and fulfillment as the gender order shifts in the 21st century.
Lambertville, NJ psychologist Ed Adams, Psy.D., President of the American Psychological Association Division 51, will be among the nationally renowned speakers coming to Rutgers for a conference on men and masculinity on March 24.
