Psychology of Men: Men's Tuesday Support Groups

Psychology of Men:

Support groups for men led by a male counselor.

“It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can seriously help another without helping himself as well.”

Charles D. Warner 1873 Essayist, Novelist, Editor

“Mutual help groups are a powerful and helpful means for people to help themselves and each other. The basic dignity of each human being is expressed in his or her capacity to be involved in a reciprocal helping exchange. Out of this compassion comes cooperation , from this cooperation comes community.

Phyllis Silverman, PhD Department of Psychiatry Harvard Medical School

“Men in peer support groups are able to tell their stories, get their cards away from their chests, find out that they are not entirely alone in this venture called life and learn to rely on other in a myriad of very human ways. Men’s peer support groups are one of the best ways to heal what may ail us as men.”

Terry Hupers M.D. Oakland Calif. Physician and Author

What is a support group?

A support group is simply a group of men who come together committed to sharing events of one‘s daily lives and feelings stirred by these events and the history behind these feelings and emotions. The only requirement to participate in this group is the desire to support and be supported in this life’s Journey.

When does our support group meet?

A men’s Tuesday night support group meets weekly for a eight week period. The group will be a closed group and is limited to 11 people. It is facilitated by Steve Adkins, M.S. and is in an informal and relaxed setting. Refreshments served.

What are the rules for the group?

  1. Take responsibility for yourself and your behavior in the group.
  2. Do not come to the group under any abusive substances.
  3. Be honest. Tell your truth as you know it.
  4. What is said in group or happens in group stays in the group.
  5. Should you desire to drop out of the group, have the respect and courtesy to process this decision with the group.
