For the past thirty years, assumptions, myths, and conventional expectations about what it is to be a man, men's role, and male identity have been fundamentally challenged. Attempts have been made to discredit or reject even the most familiar aspects of traditional manhood. This era of cultural upheaval has created an atmosphere of widespread anxiety and bewilderment for men. To work effectively with male clients, mental health professionals must learn how to reach men and make the therapeutic process meaningful for clients who are, more often than not, stubbornly opposed to therapy. The New Handbook of Psychotherapy and Counseling with Men is a compilation of information on the most current theories, research, effective treatment programs, techniques, and strategies for working compassionately and successfully with the often resistant or mandated male client. This comprehensive two-volume resource is written by an exceptional group of mental health professionals who draw on their real-life experiences of working with men facing problems in a variety of settings and circumstances. Volume One gives clinicians the practical solutions and proven techniques they need for addressing some of men's most common problems, including depression, drug and alcohol abuse and addiction, divorce, male aggression and violence, and sexual dysfunction. The Handbook also shows how to counsel boys and men in a wide variety of circumstances and includes techniques for working with school-aged clients, businessmen, court-ordered clients, college students, prisoners, men in V.A. hospitals or rehabilitation settings, and much more. In addition, this volume contains a wealth of information and practical advice about such critical topics as the crises of boyhood, contemporary marriage, therapeutic interventions with fathers, navigating midlife, and sexual integrity. The New Handbook of Psychotherapy and Counseling with Men is a practical manual written for any clinician who is dedicated to helping men live lives that are satisfying, richly varied, and broadly fulfilling.
