Editorial Reviews

Don C. Locke

"Arthur M. Horne and Mark S. Kiselica have produced a timely compendium which offers an exciting glimpse at important developments related to boys and men. This well thought out volume boldly ranges beyond conventional boundaries and will be a useful addition to the available literature on boys and men."

Primarily for practitioners in any of the counseling professions, but also useful as a text for a course on counseling boys and adolescents or on gender issues in counseling. The authors draw on their own practice as well as the field's literature to explore such issues as developmental challenges, how male youth can achieve a mature and healthy sense of masculinity, culturally salient issues in different ethnic groups, effective methods for establishing rapport and intervening, and helping boys who are victims as well as perpetrators.
