The Palgrave Handbook of Male Psychology and Mental Health (PDF) shows the first concerted effort to understand male mental health in a way that drives a positive step forward in both theory and treatment. A shocking number of men experience serious mental health issues, as proved by high rates of suicide and violent offending. Irrespective of these problems, the study of male psychology has either been ignored, or viewed as a problem of defective masculinity. This ebook brings together specialists from across the world to discuss men’s mental health, from prenatal development, through childhood, adolescence, and fatherhood. Men and masculinity are analyzed from multiple perspectives including evolutionary, cross-cultural, biological, cognitive, developmental, and existential viewpoints, with an emphasis on practical suggestions and demonstrations of successful clinical work with men.
All through the ebook, chapters question existing models of understanding and treating men’s mental health and explore new theories, approaches and interventions. This definitive ebook encapsulates a new wave of positive theory and practice in the field of male psychology and will be of great significance to academics, professionals, and those working with males through the lifespan in any sector associated to male mental health and wellbeing.
