Breaking Barriers in Counseling Men is aunique collection of personal and engaging contributions from nationally recognized scholars and clinicians with expertise in treating men. The editors have selected men’s clinicians who address areas as diverse as sexual dysfunction, male bonding over sports, father-son relationships, and counseling men in the military. Featuring a mix of clinical tips, personal anecdotes, and theoretical reframing, this book takes clinicians invested in these issues to the next level, breaking down barriers to connecting with men and getting them the help that is so often needed.


"Clinicians who struggle connecting with their seemingly closed-off, resistant male clients will benefit from this excellent resource, which is chock-full of different ways to reach men."
Ronald F. Levant, EdD, professor of psychology at the University of Akron and editor of Psychology of Men and Masculinity
"Rochlen and Rabinowitz are creative clinicians, groundbreaking scholars, and compelling storytellers. With Breaking Barriers in Counseling Men, they have assembled a no less-talented team to produce a volume both wide in scope and packed with clinical wisdom. It is sure to be a classic in the increasingly important literature on working with men."
Michael Addis, PhD, professor of psychology at Clark University and past president of the Society for the Psychological Study of Men and Masculinity
"The authors provide a delightful and engaging compilation of ideas that help free mental health professionals and their practices to better serve their male clients."
Glenn E. Good, dean and professor of the College of Education at the University of Florida and editor of The New Handbook of Psychotherapy and Counseling with Men
"This engaging collection of strategies and insights bridges the ‘culture clash’ men often experience in counseling and offers clinicians a range of creative alternatives to traditional practice."
Sam V. Cochran, PhD, director of the university counseling service at the University of Iowa
