“Say More About That” Show Notes: Episode #28 – How I have experienced toxic masculinity on the baseball field and in therapy

Jeff Guenther, MS, LPC on Sep 08, 2019 in Say More About That

Today, I talk about toxic masculinity, what it is and how it has had long lasting effects on my life. I share personal stories about my time playing baseball and how toxic masculinity seeped into my t-ball career and then spiked when I played on the high school team. I go into detail about the struggle I experienced as a therapist trying to confront a client of mine that was displaying signs of toxic masculinity. And how I bumbled through those therapy sessions in a not so elegant way. 

This episode covers:

  • What is toxic masculinity?
  • How I have personally been effected by toxic masculinity.
  • My struggles regarding a client that was acting toxic and how I tried to challenge him.
