Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The culture of traditional psychotherapy has required the expression of feelings and behaviors that conflict with aspects of the traditional male role. This groundbreaking book explores the psychological sources of men's emotional difficulties, explains how to overcome men's resistance to therapy, and describes a range of psychotherapeutic interventions for depression, stress, relationship difficulties, and more.

From the Inside Flap

Slowly, the truth emerges. In a society in which men are expected to be strong, independent,aggressive,and impervious to emotional stress, boys are nine times more likely than girls to suffer from hyperactivity, young men are five times more likely to commit suicide than young women, and men have far higher rates of substance abuse and antisocial personality disorder than women. Clearly, many men are in need of psychological treatment and psychotherapy. Ironically, however, the very qualities that are responsible for many of their emotional and behavioral difficulties make it much more difficult for men to admit they have problems, seek professional help,or have faith in the efficacy of treatment. In New Psychotherapy for Men, leading figures in the field of men’s psychology explore the psychological sources of men’s emotional difficulties and offer specific techniques to help therapists overcome men’s resistance to therapy. With the help of full-length case studies, they trace the sources of emotional and psychological disturbances in men and present new models for assessing and treating men’s unique emotional difficulties. This book illuminates the unhealthy aspects of masculinity through the lens of gender role strain, creating state-of-the-art, gender-specific treatments for men. Major issues addressed in New Psychotherapy for Men include:
  • Reluctant men in couples therapy
  • Group therapy for traditional men
  • Gender role strain in the family system
  • Recognizing and treating depression in men
  • Men’s shame and trauma in therapy
  • Gender role strain as a factor in male impotence
  • Treating male violence
  • Helping men find a voice for their feelings
  • Adapting psychodynamic therapy for men

By M. Dunaeva on March 12, 2010
Format: Kindle Edition
Read few chapters so far and found it fascinating with genuine facts about deeper levels of male persona. (Male psyche, if you like) I would recommended both to professionals and beginners and curious people alike(!!). Every time I open a new page, it feels me up with more compassion towards our male population :)
