Graduate Counseling Student and Professor Present at LCA conference on the Masculine Protest

Graduate student Ida Ansell and Professor Kevin Foose lead a discussion at the Louisiana Counseling Association's (LCA) annual conference on the forgotten legacy of Alfred Adler’s theory of the Masculine Protest and the implications of our field’s collective amnesia. They gave an introduction to the historical context in which Adler came to his ideas about the debilitating consequences of Western society’s construction of the gender binary and its preference for aggression and exploitation. Then, with audience participation, discussed what is happening interpersonally, in the counseling field, and globally, after a hundred years of not heeding Adler’s warnings.
