The Strength in Vulnerability: For too long Men - fathers, sons, and brothers - have learned that it's better to suppress than express. Emotions, especially vulnerable ones, have been tightly wrapped up in our high-vis shirts as ‘too weak, too feminine or too sensitive’. In this weeks Pregnancy Birth and Beyond episode, join me Sean Tonnet, as I deconstruct the myth of vulnerability with my special guest Peter Chowan. Peter has worked as a Psychologist for more than 30 years. with extensive experience with men’s mental health and as a consultant to the World Health Organisation, UNFPA and UNESCO in more than a dozen countries. Together we will reflect on our experience of working with men and, as men, explore the notion that vulnerability takes courage and bravery. A strength essential for our children in a new world First aired on 99.9 Bay FM in Byron Bay on 4th February 2019. Produced and presented by Sean Tonnet Copyright 2019 PBB Media and Sean Tonnet
