This book examines a variety of critical issues pertaining to the psychology of men and masculinity and presents successful, evidence-based strategies for treatment. Part 1 focuses on treating men in couples counseling, group work, and career counseling, as well as counseling men about their health. Part 2 explores the intersections of identity for sexual minority men, older men, and fathers, and discusses spiritual work with men in life transitions. Part 3 addresses the concerns of men in the military, prevention of sexual violence, and treating men with addictions and trauma-related issues. Part 4 provides the specific clinical frames of female counselors using relational–cultural theory with men, and examines using motivational and masculine-sensitive therapy with men. Examples and vignettes throughout the text provide clinical relevance, and reflective questions in each chapter encourage readers to explore their own biases and ideas about working with men. *Requests for digital versions from ACA can be found on wiley.com.  *To purchase print copies, please visit the ACA website <>. /> /> *Reproduction requests for material from books published by ACA should be directed to <>.
