Handbook of Counseling and Psychotherapy with Men
Edition New ed
OverviewNow available in paper, this handbook presents a comprehensive examination of all areas of therapy with men with an emphasis on masculist therapy. The contributors integrate the theoretical and research literatures on psychotherapy and male gender roles, and explore the effect of those roles on therapy. Theoretical considerations and research findings are anchored in practical suggestions and anecdotal or case examples. A section introducing the techniques and perspectives of masculist therapy is followed by sections which highlight specific problems faced by men relevant to age, ethnicity and special circumstances, such as counselling men with AIDS, single fathers, men in dual-career marriages and men who batter women.
