Ryon McDermott, a doctoral student at the University of Houston, will discuss research about how men develop their sense of masculinity by exploring and committing to various gender roles. Central to this process is the role of gender role dogmatism. It is important to explore instead of foreclosing too quickly on gender roles related to being a man in order to prompt well-being and an authentic self.
