A source of theoretical and clinical guidance for helping male clients look inward to resolve the core conflicts in their lives. The conflict areas most common for men include ambivalence about dependence in close relationships, prohibitions against feeling sadness, gender-role demands that conflict with emotional needs, and the common masculine aversion to "being" as opposed to "doing". The book includes methods and techniques for working through these four conflicts and deepening therapy in both individual and group settings. Rabinowitz and Cochran integrate knowledge of male gender role association with psychodynamic, existential and experiential theories to create an approach to therapy that balances the impact of male culture with each client's individual psychological history. The methods and interventions offered aim to reconnect distracted, anxious, violent and frozen men to emotional places they have long forgotten. The authors provide many case dialogues illustrating these techniques in practice.
