Men in Psychotherapy: The Unique Challenges and Lasting Benefits

The Men’s Resource Center of West Michigan provides the tools and support men need to better navigate and succeed in today’s world. It offers a wide range of services including counseling, assessment, consultation, evaluation, and therapy.

Each of its therapists is well-educated and highly knowledgeable in specialized areas. On occasion, the Center invites guest therapists to share their skills and knowledge. Dr. Kirk Brink is one of those individuals. Dr. Brink has practiced individual and group psychotherapy in private practice for over 30 years.

He is a friend and mentor to Randy Flood, psychotherapist, and Director of the Men’s Resource Center, with whom he has co-facilitated psychotherapy and men’s support groups. Whereas Flood’s psychotherapy groups are exclusive to men, Dr. Brink offers mixed-group counseling; including men and women. His experience of working with mixed groups provides him keen insights into gender differences, challenges, and similarities when working with clients in counseling.

In this conversation, the two talk about their work with men in psychotherapy: the unique challenges and the lasting benefits for men.
