tough_guise

Film Viewing & Discussion: Tough Guise: Violence, Media & the Crisis in Masculinity (1999) Media Education Foundation

While the social construction of femininity has been widely examined, the dominant role of masculinity has until recently remained largely invisible. Tough Guise is the first educational video geared toward college and high school students to systematically examine the relationship between pop-cultural imagery and the social construction of masculine identities in the U.S. at the dawn of the 21st century.

Guest Speaker Mike Lezzi
As staff psychologist at Texas Tech University since 2008, Lezzi primarily utilizes emotion-focused therapy, while also incorporating aspects of interpersonal process and cognitive behavioral approaches. Emotion-focused therapy combines humanism, attachment theory, and a family systems perspective. Professional interests include multicultural issues, group therapy and men's issues.
