Finding Brave

Jan 25, 2018

Bestselling author and nationally renowned couple’s and family therapist Terry Real joins Finding Brave to explore the critical and complex  issues at the heart of Gender, Power, and Relationships.

A lecturer for over twenty years, Terry is a member of the senior faculty at the Family Institute of Cambridge and Director of the Gender Relations program at the Meadows Institute in Arizona.  His work shares a rigorous yet commonsense approach, and speaks to both men and women powerfully. His ideas on men’s issues and on couple’s therapy have been celebrated in venues from Good Morning America, The Today Show and 20/20, to Oprah and The New York Times.

A proponent of “full-throttle marriage,” as described in his book The New Rules of Marriage, Terry has been called “the most innovative voice in thinking about and treating men and their relationships in the world today.” 

Join us in this raw, emotional and eye-opening discussion that explores:

  1. The far-reaching and damaging effects of patriarchy for both men and women today

  2. How men are trained to hate and shun vulnerability and what that does to their ability to live fully, relate with others and connect intimately

  3. How men can assess with one simple question if their behavior with and to women is appropriate or not

  4. Ways in which parents can help their children today find wholeness, which is what’s essential for healthy, loving, connected lives
  5. Why empathy is overrated, and compassionate is more impactful

  6. The top three steps to take today to begin to reverse the damage that our gender role training has forced within us
