Engage Connecting with Men 18th June 2024
Experiential workshop for service providers who wish to engage in more meaningful ways with men around health & wellbeing issues
About this Event

The HSE Mid West Health Promotion & Impovement team are facilitating an Engage Connecting with Men workshop this June in Limerick for practitioners/service providers who work with/intend on working with males.

Aim of the Engage Connecting with Men workshop:

To assist a broad range of practitioners and service providers to explore the world of males, and to develop practical strategies for effectively engaging with them around health and wellbeing issues.

This one day experiential workshop focuses on the importance of the right engagement with men, the engagement process (i.e. WHY and HOW to build relationships with men) rather than offering a new or revised health programme (i.e. WHAT to offer them).

Topics covered on the day:

  • How to create a ‘safe space’ for working with men.
  • Exploring what a ‘male friendly’ health programme or service looks like in practice.
  • Exploring how gender influences the values and attitudes that men develop in relation to their health, and how this influences their health behaviours.
  • Reflection on participants’ own value base, experience, skills, attitudes towards and expectations of men.
  • Understanding of what men’s health is and why it is important.
  • The determinants of health that shape health outcomes for men

Date: Tuesday 18th June 2024
