This comprehensive guide to the unique challenges faced by boys and young men encompasses today's most critical issues and presents effective, evidence-based strategies for treating them. Recognizing the specific needs of diverse young males, this text covers such contemporary issues as bullying and harassment, anger management, online gaming, addiction, pornography, and gang membership. The differences between the developmental issues of males and females are addressed, along with the emotional, intellectual, and physical changes boys experience as they move into adolescence. The difficulties counselors face in their efforts to access emotional expression in boys are discussed along with strategies to overcome these barriers.

Each chapter includes a comprehensive case scenario that highlights the presenting issue, how the issue affects functioning, and how effective treatment is best implemented. Additional resources for more in-depth study are also included throughout the book.
