Men and masculinity are analyzed from multiple perspectives including evolutionary; cross-cultural; biological; cognitive; developmental; and existential viewpoints; with an emphasis on practical suggestions and demonstrations of successful clinical work with men.
All through the ebook; chapters question existing models of understanding and treating men’s mental health and explore new theories; approaches and interventions.
