In the Room with Men by Matt Englar-Carlson
Book DescriptionIn the Room With Men explores theories of masculinities, current research on the psychology of men, and how these ideas are applied in clinical practice. Men enter therapy less frequently than women, and when they do, therapy can be quite different than it is with women clients. To work with men successfully, therapists must be aware of these differences and often must adjust their approach. Although a growing amount of research addresses the mental health issues that men face, it is hard to find anything in the literature documenting the experiences of therapists working with men or ways to tailor therapy to their unique needs. The contributing authors of this volume remedy this situation by bringing readers into the counseling room with their male clients and describing their personal views about and their particular approach to working with men. At the heart of each chapter is a case narrative, giving readers a hands-on feel for how therapy works with male clients and insight into how and why therapists make certain clinical decisions. The contributors work with men from different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds, and in so doing highlight how notions of masculinity intersect with other aspects of culture. Over the course of the volume, these case examples and discussions paint a clear picture of the clinical realities of working with men. Featuring empirical discussions throughout the volume as well as a comprehensive theory and literature survey, "In the Room With Men" effectively combines research, theory, and actual practice, making this a must-have resource for all mental health practitioners.
