    Toxic Masculinity - Is this a thing?

    Toxic Masculinity - Is this a thing?

    Actor, Ex-NFL player, and father, Terry Crews recently spoke before the Senate Judiciary Committee to advocate for the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights. While he displayed great bravery in sharing his testimony of his own sexual assault, he may have unknowingly promoted a misused narrative of "toxic masculinity." Join Jon and Dr. David as they discuss bad behaviors that men need to correct as well as how men need to join in on a united front, in order to correct the current narrative of toxic masculinity. The two also discuss ways in which men can seek help if they have been a victim of sexual assault.

    Listen in and enjoy as Jon and Dr. David once again blend pop culture and psychology together, as only they can!

    Growth Mindset - Embracing Challenges

    Growth Mindset - Embracing Challenges

    "Changing your mind will change your life!" On this episode of The Men's Compass, Dr. David and Jon tackle the topic of developing a growth mindset. Often times we as men are hindered by our own thoughts and ways in which we view the world. A growth mindset allows us to embrace challenge, persist in the face of setbacks, and helps us learn from criticism. On the contrary, a fixed or limited mindset causes us to give up early, to become self-conscious, and creates an unhealthy fear of others. Do you operate from a growth or limited mindset?

    Masculinity vs #MeToo - How men can be men without shame

    Masculinity vs #MeToo - How men can be men without shame

    In the wake of the #MeToo Movement, many men are feeling deflated and confused. Many media/social media outlets as well as "experts" in their fields are attempting to demonize masculinity, while asserting that being male is inherently problematic. Listen in as Dr. David and Jon discuss the recent poster campaign at the University of Texas at Austin that sought to address interpersonal violence and sexual assault while attempting to expand the definition of masculinity. On this episode they also discuss how men can display heathy traits while not minimizing their "maleness." This conversation is heavy and the hope is that men are encouraged to be men while not accepting the false idea that their biological makeup is by nature "toxic."
