Description

In Working With Veterans, Dr. Gary R. Brooks demonstrates his integrative approach to working with men who have served in the military. In general, male culture holds values contrary to psychotherapeutic goals and methods, including a resistance to asking for help and an aversion to vulnerability and intimacy. These traits are often higher among those who have served in the military, making therapy with this population challenging. Dr. Brooks takes this into account and modifies therapy to make it more compatible with men's ways of thinking and doing.

In this session, Dr. Brooks works with a 39-year-old African American male veteran who is considering reenlisting. Together they explore the client's experiences and cognitions that may have formed his sense of self and that may also contribute to this seemingly rash decision.
