Men have specific gender-related influences that can affect their health and psychological well-being, and it is thus necessary for mental health practitioners to be knowledgeable in effective interventions for working with them. The purpose of this book is to provide a thorough foundation for understanding men's health and risks and the differences between men. It will discuss effective, evidence-based strategies for practitioners to improve the health and well being of boys and men by drawing from a wealth of literature and research in a diverse array of disciplines, as well as from the author's original research designed specifically to examine gender and men's health.
Will Courtenay, PhD, LGSW, is Director of Men's Health Consulting in Oakland, California. He has served on the clinical faculty in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, and the University of California, San Francisco, Medical School.
