In this section of the web page are video lectures and additional printed information on topics related to GRC, masculine ideology, and psychological health.

First, the gender role journey class/workshop curriculum content can be reviewed in this section. The curriculum for the gender role journey was initially created in 1983 and published in numerous publications over the years (O’Neil, 1995, 2015, O’Neil & Roberts Carroll, 1988; Kilmartin, Addis, Mahalik, O’Neil, 2013; Mahalik, Addis, Kilmartin, & O’Neil, 2013).

The initial curriculum  was created for my summer workshop, EPSY 325 “Gender Role Conflict for Helping Professionals” that was a six day, 42 hour class taught from 1983-2006 (O’Neil & Robert Carroll, 1988). In 2007, the curriculum was developed into a regular, 16 week academic class and in 2021 the course was transformed to a completely online offering.

As the course has evolved, 17 major content areas have been added to the original GRC curriculum.  The new content areas are:

  • Psychoeducation,
  • Twenty-four Considerations for EPSY 6304,
  • Gender Role Journey,
  • Psychological Violence,
  • Men’s Violence Against Women,
  • Human Vulnerability,
  • Understanding Your Emotions, Healing, & the Wounded Person Cycle,
  • Working with Emotional Pain,
  • Working With Emotional pain (audio – Convention Presentation, Forgiveness, Dealing With Loss, Marilyn Monroe’s Gender Role Journey, Frank Sinatra’s Gender Role Journey),
  • My Gender Role Journey-Part 1,
  • Positive Healthy Masculinity,
  • Metaphors For Healing,
  • Closure lecture for EPSY 6304,
  • Teaching EPSY 6304 at UCONN.
