African-American Male Empowerment Summit: Celebrating Urban Fatherhood through Mentoring, Business, Family and Community Development. The National Exchange for Urban Leaderhip (NEULSM) created these summits in 1998 to promote entrepreneurship, fatherhood and youth leadership programs, while celebrating the accomplishments of individuals and organizations which enhance the lives of Urban Americans through mentoring, community development and partnership creation. NEULSM was inspired by the vast number of untapped, entrepreneurial opportunities and the strong, yet largely unknown, network of urban male mentoring, family and community development organizations across the United States. It was created to profile young urban leaders and the elements which enable their success. The theme of the summit is "A Little Child Shall Lead Them" - Isaiah 11:6. NEULSM explores Career Development, Fatherhood, Mentoring, Relationship Building and Community Development, while focusing on all aspects of youth development and leadership. Drs.

Archetypal Psychology, An International Symposium. Psychology at the Threshold. Out of the cradle endlessly rocking... Robert Bly, Edward Casey, William Doty, James Hillman, Michael Meade and many others. A momentous shift in the reckoning of time puts closure to two thousand years of historical psyche. We look back, take stock, shift, commemorate, grieve. Despite business as usual and the comfortable familiarity of daily continuity, another epoch is emerging with its needs, its passions, its symbols. Below the historical psyche and the movement of time lies the timeless psyche of archetypal urges. To sort out the receding from the oncoming, the dying from the living, and to honor the dead without succumbing to their numbing power, all the while trying to discern the soul's moving images within the passing parade - such are the tasks of psychology at the treshold. Lectures and workshop leaders from the fields of literature and poetry, psychology, music, mythology, philosophy, political science and public policy, ecology, theater, film and the natural sciences will be presenting. W&M Pacific Graduate Institute, Santa Barbara, www.pacifica.edu or 805.969.3626 x 103. (8/31-9/4/00)

Hida is Chairperson of the intersex genital autonomy Organization Intersex International United States, Soraya is Executive Director of Persistent Productions, Steven is Executive Director of Attorneys for the Rights of the Child, and Marilyn is the Executive Director of NOCIRC. This event is a reprise of the May 1, 2015 first BirthKeeper Summit (birthkeepersummit.com ) at which the same team spoke. The event will be videotaped thanks to filmmaker Troy Christian, who is Marilyn's son.
Brief Description: To help create a peaceful world, we must begin with how we welcome babies into the world and how we treat them once they're born. Protecting infants from unnecessary pain and trauma is crucial to health and wellbeing and non-therapeutic genital cutting is one of the first medicalized interventions from which babies must be protected.
There is considerable controversy today about the practice of non-therapeutic genital cutting of male, female, and intersex infants and children. This session will begin with an overview of the issues; female genital cutting will be discussed by a survivor; protecting intersex infants and children from years of surgeries, secrecy, and shame will be addressed by an intersex person; and an attorney will explain the legal and ethical issues of cutting the normal genitals of non-consenting minors and the importance of protecting children's rights to genital autonomy.

At-Home Dads Convention, 9th Annual. Most at-home dads break from the traditional male career path for a single reason: We believe our children benefit.

Whether you are a new at-home dad, a seasoned veteran or considering joining the ranks, this conference is for you.

Healing Sexual Victimization of Boys and Men, 9th International Conference on Male Sexual Victimization. Mic Hunter, Richard Gartner and others. The conference will provide an opportuinty for discussion as well as mutual growth and understanding between survivors, clinicians, and researchers. There will be four tracks: healing, training, prevention, and research. Two Plenary Panels: The first will be a panel of experts from the fields of trauma, sexual abuse, and dissociation who have not primarily written about work with male sexual victims. We anticipate that this panel, (Christine Courtois, Mary Gail Frawley-ODea, Karen Hopenwasser, and Richard Kluft) will discuss what their fields have to offer us in treating and understanding male survivors, as well as explore why male sexual victimization has been largely missing from the literature. Our second Plenary Panel will relate to working with diverse populations. This panel will consist of experts from varied cultural backgrounds with expertise in trauma, abuse and/or the the ways that disparate populations react to sexual abuse and to treatment situations. We expect that this panel (Neil Altman, Carlos Loredo, Eugene Porter, and Kirkland Vaughans, with Ernesto Mujica as moderator) will address the specific needs and problems encountered in work with sexually abused men of African-American, Latino, Asian, and ethnically marginalized backgrounds. We are also working on a major presentation related to masculine gender socialization. We expect that there will be workshops involving clinical technique for mental health and other professionals. In addition, however, there will be healing work with survivors and their partners as well as panels and workshops related to such varied topics as working with the police in situations related to male sexual victimization, artistic expressions of the healing process, making films on the subject, using native practices and techniques in work with sexually abused men, and mens experience of writing first person accounts of sexual abuse for publication. Selected presentations from the conference will be published in "Men and Masculinities", a journal edited by Michael Kimmel, a sociology professor at the State University of New York.

Increase in Coronary Heart Disease in Central and Eastern Europe: Stress and Gender related Factors, NATO Advanced Research Workshop. Objectives:: To bring together a group of international and multidisciplinary researchers to (a) critically assess existing knowledge of traditional, psychosocial, and new coronary risk factors, (b) promote working relationships among participating scientists, and (c) identify directions for future action. The focus will be on gender differences in stress-related factors and their associations with cardiovascular risk. Specifically, the workshop will address the increasing gender gap in mortality in many Eastern European countries, which appears to be primarily due to a cardiovascular disease epidemic among middle-aged men. The workshop will attempt to answer the question why the Eastern European experience has affected men's cardiovascular health more dramatically than women's. Co-directors: Gerdi Weidner, State University of New York at Stony Brook and Maria Kopp, Semmelweis University of Medicine, Budapest. Topics such as "Psychosocial risk factors, inequality and self-rated morbidity in a changing society" and "Trends in Gender Differences in Ischemic Heart Disease Mortality -- Relationships to Trends in Health-related Behavior and Changing Gender Roles" and "Gender and age differences in perceived social support" are some of the many topics to be covered. Co-Sponsored by the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research at the National Institutes of Health, the Wellcome Trust, and the Hungarian Ministry of Health, Budapest. Attendance is mainly by invitation, but a few places are available for particularly well-qualified scientists upon application. Inquiries may be addressed to Gerdi Weidner email@example.com W&M Budapest, Hungary.

Mind Your Head: Improving The Wellbeing Of Men And Boys Conference which will take place in London, England. The conference will raise awareness of all the mental health issues that impact on men. It will look at these issues, however, from a positive standpoint, exploring how problems can be tackled through gender-sensitive practice in a wide range of settings and life stages. The aim is to ensure that each delegate goes away with at least one working model for their own practice, inspired by all they have seen and heard. A constant theme throughout the day is the needs of black and minority ethnic men, who are often marginalised and unable to access appropriate services. The conference is sponsored by the Men's Health Forum in conjunction with National Men's Health Week 6/12-18/06. The cost is less than £150 for an action packed day, with a healthy option lunch, lots of coffee breaks, 3 parallel symposia, 12 workshops, over 60 speakers, and a sizeable exhibition.

National Men's Conference, "How vulnerable is a man?" is the title of the National Men's Conference that Father's Center Adam organized in The Hague on Tuesday, February 20, 1pm on. You are cordially invited to attend.
The vulnerability of the man is best shown in figures:
Loneliness among men is great. Almost 330 thousand men are lonely, compared with 220 thousand women. Men have a problem with power and sexuality, as witnessed by the # MeToo discussion.
And now more girls are studying than boys. What does that mean for their labor market opportunities?
It is high time to examine the vulnerability of the man with scientists, experts, artists, policymakers and politicians at the first National Men's Conference to be organized by Father's Center Adam in The Hague on February 20th from 1 pm onwards.

Sexual Imagination: Psychotherapy Networker Symposium. Presented by: Joe Kort, Ph.D., LMSW and Jo Barrett, M.S.W. Fifty Shades of Grey has sparked at least that many questions among therapists about the erotic and psychological appeal this bestselling novel holds for millions of readers around the world. This thought-provoking workshop will explore what the phenomenon tells us about our clients' longings, needs, and fantasies-and what our own responses reveal about us. We'll look at such issues as: what are the limits of fantasy? Where's the boundary between playing out a sex game and engaging in potentially self-destructive behavior? When do erotic games sought for novelty and variety become compulsive or retraumatizing? How, as a therapist, do you determine when a client's fantasies, or actual behavior, is spiraling out of control? You'll leave with a much broader understanding of the psychological meaning of the erotic imagination. More info here. Washington, DC (3/23/13)

The Values of Violence: Shaping and enforcing hegemonic masculinites, Gender Studies: Male, a panel at the 42nd Annual Midwest Modern Lanuage Association Convention. Recent events have focused popular media attention on masculine violence--the shootings at Columbine, the Wyoming murder of a gay man, the Texas dragging death of a black man prominent among those events. Media discussion has focused on causes of this violence (media, economics, political culture, competitive sports), on this violence as socially transgressive, and on ways to contain (control, prevent) this "marginal" violence. However, violence might also be seen as serving hegemonic masculinities in several ways: for example, the white knight who saves the princess in danger of rape can only do so if the black knight is a real threat of violence to the princess. This idea raises questions about whether or not these extremes of violence are indeed transgressive. This session seeks to ask questions about violence and masculinity beyond the obvious questions asked by the media: How does violence shape and enforce hegemonic forms of masculinity? How does apparently transgressive violence at the extreme serve normative, hegemonic masculinities in the "center"? What is the cultural value of violence to the dominant forms of masculinity? How does violence serve hegemonic masculinities? Midwest Modern Language Association (MMLA) www.uiowa.edu/~mmla/ W&M Hyatt Regency Crown Center, Kansas City, MO (11/2-4/00)
