Quincy University assistant professor and counseling program director Ken Oliver, PhD, recently presented a 60-minute live webinar for the American Counseling Association (ACA) entitled, “Depression treatment for men: An ecological perspective.” Oliver’s presentation focused on the integration of traditional counseling approaches with contemporary, oppression-centered approaches to provide a relevant, meta-theoretical framework for working with depressed male clients. The presentation also explored stigma, social conditioning, and gender-role expectations that may exacerbate depression tendencies in men. The webinar is part of the series entitled, “Depression: New and emerging treatment strategies,” and is available “on demand” for purchase on ACA’s website at http://www.counseling.org/continuing-education/webinars. ACA’s Webinar Series is available for continuing education credit for licensed mental health professionals. ACA stands alone as the flagship international organization for professional counselors and the ACA Webinar Series features some of the profession’s most preeminent, prolific, and emergent scholars.
