Men In Groups: Insights, Interventions, Psychoeducational Work
It is common knowledge among practitioners that men have not taken to psychotherapy as willingly as women have. This edited volume argues that groups—therapy, support, and psychoeducational—are ideal forums in which to work with men.
This book provides an excellent entree into psychological work with men in groups and represents the cutting-edge work being done in this area. The chapters detail successful intentions for working with men in groups, from complete three-day seminars and psychoeducational workshops to techniques and strategies for less structured, ongoing groups.
Each chapter focuses on a specific population of men (e.g., gay, African American, homeless, Hispanic, and middle-class men) or on a specific issue that men may face, such as fathering issues or problems associated with violence. Throughout, the authors provide rich portrayals of how men respond and grow in this setting. This volume is intended for psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors and paraprofessionals working with men in groups or simply for those who have an interest in men's issues.
This softcover edition is a re-release of the 1995 hardcover edition.
