How Do I Help Him?
"Males are struggling throughout our culture experiencing trauma, violence, unemployment, school failure, under-motivation, and in many cases, destitution. Males are also underserved in the helping professions. Boys and men often feel that therapists, health care workers, and human services professionals are not as well informed or educated in what males need as they could be.
Our offices are generally set up for sitting quietly in a chair and talking, rather than for physical movement, nonverbal techniques, thematic therapy, and other male-healthy strategies. Transformation in clinical practice grows from both new thinking and new doing.
HOW DO I HELP HIM? helps transform theory and practice to include a deeper understanding of male development in therapy, health care, and human services. The book includes new logic models and practical tools and strategies that will transform your office, school, or other environment.
These new models and tools do not replace present psychological theories, but instead blend with prevailing psychological theories to help ensure their effectiveness with boys and men. Throughout the book, readers also learn new ways to look at girls and women s lives, couple communication, and marriage and family issues. The lives of boys and girls and women and men are inextricably linked, and ever more so as our culture evolves. To take better care of boys and men is to help girls and women flourish, as well."
