Healing the Male Psyche: Therapy as Initiation

Front Cover
Psychology Press, 1997 - Psychology - 285 pages

John Rowan argues that if men are to escape from their old roles and the new pressures of social uncertainty they need to be initiated into a new kind of masculinity, but that this process must be personal to each man. He explores how therapy can help or hinder the process of transformation. Written for men who are looking for a new way of understanding their predicament as well as psychotherapists and counsellors working with men, Healing the Male Psyche is packed with useful information and exercises and supported by a wide range of references.
