Handbook of Counseling Boys and Adolescent Males
A Practitioner's Guide



February 2000 | 440 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
`I found this a stimulating and readable book that was full of practical ideas. Some of the chapters may be of special interest to readers working in America, but I would expect the book to be of value to anyone wanting to give consideration to boys' and mens' issues in mental health, community and educational settings' - Clinical Child Psychology and Psychiatry

This comprehensive, practical resource provides specific strategies for counsellors working with boys and male adolescents from different cultural backgrounds.

The first part examines how psychological, career and athletic development of boys is shaped by a complex interaction of biological, social, cultural and economic forces. TheSecond Part covers cultural considerations when counselling particular North American client groups, such as Hispanic-Americans. The final part focuses on special populations such as gay, sexually abused and developmentally disabled boys.

"Arthur M. Horne and Mark S. Kiselica have produced a timely compendium which offers an exciting glimpse at important developments related to boys and men. This well thought out volume boldly ranges beyond conventional boundaries and will be a useful addition to the available literature on boys and men."
