What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
"A superb discourse on modern men and their problems. A must-read for all practicing psychotherapists."
—Bernard D. Beitman, professor and chairman, Department of Psychiatry, University of Missouri-Columbia, and author of Learning Psychotherapy and The Structure of Individual Psychotherapy

"This is a splendid award-winning book that even the most seasoned practitioner, regardless of theoretical orientation, will find quite valuable! This revised and abridged edition provides an in-depth and comprehensive understanding of the unique problems of men in various settings, as well as ‘normal’ issues of the male life cycle. All psychotherapists will find the descriptions of formats and modalities, as well as special skills in working with men, to be enlightening. The case examples are rich, inspiring, and provide insights about working men not found elsewhere. This edited handbook belongs in every university library, as well as that of each psychotherapist, instructor, and student of counseling and psychotherapy."
—Melba J. T. Vasquez, former president, APA Division 35, Society for the Psychology of Women, APA Division 17, Society of Counseling Psychology, and 2006 president of the Texas Psychological Association

"Good and Brooks have distilled the essence of their important two-volume work into an extremely accessible and no less useful book that’s essential for competent practice. If you work with men, or with people who relate to men (in other words, if you’re a therapist), then you’ll need to read this book so that your consciousness of men’s diverse roles and realities will be raised and sharpened."
—Laura S. Brown, professor, Washington School of Professional Psychology, Argosy University/Seattle

"The best just keeps getting better! The revised edition of The New Handbook of Psychotherapy and Counseling with Men updates and improves upon the earlier classic. Simultaneously practical and scholarly, it is a treasure for all mental health professionals treating men."
—John C. Norcross, professor of psychology and distinguished university fellow, University of Scranton; editor, Journal of Clinical Psychology: In Sessio; president, International Society of Clinical Psychology
