Additional Book Details

"Arthur M. Horne and Mark S. Kiselica have gathered a large and impressive team of authorities from around the United States and New Zealand to produce a comprehensive volume on counseling boys. The contributing authors address a wide variety of developmental and cultural considerations pertaining to counseling boys, and they offer extremely useful recommendations for helping 11 special clinical populations of boys. I know of no other book on boys that is as broad in its scope or as practical in its approach as is this groundbreaking work."—Arnold A. Lazarus, Ph.D., ABPP,Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Psychology, Rutgers University

"This wonderful volume represents the advancing developments of the field, is broad and comprehensive in scope, offers outstanding clinical and practical suggestions, and includes a veritable ′who′s who′ of counselors and psychologists among its contributors. Mental health professionals and graduate students will treasure this reference work."

"The Handbook of Counseling Boys and Adolescent Males fills a gap in the counseling field by providing counselors in schools and community agencies with information that will guide them in expanding their services to the males with whom they work. The developmental background is very helpful to counselors in expanding their understanding of the nature of problems boys′ experience in growing up; the section on cultural considerations illustrates sensitivity to the varying racial, ethnic intervention, and treatment programs that may be used in schools and community agencies. This book will be an extremely helpful resource for counselors in their work with boys and adolescent males, it is highly recommended for all mental health practitioners."
--Pamela Paisley, Ed.D The University of Georgia, President, Association of Counselor Education and Supervision

"As we try to understand the violence that has rocked our schools, one common denominator stands out: The perpetrators are all young males. School counselors confirm that there are a lot of angry young men out there. Why are they so angry? What can we do to better understand them? How can we help? This book promises to be a ′must read′ for all school counselors."
—Nancy S. Perry, NCC, NCSC, American School Counselor Association

"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."--Don C. Locke, Ph.D., North Carolina State University

The Handbook of Counseling Boys and Adolescent Males provides the reader with a context for understanding the developmental dilemmas experienced by male youth and how male development, both adaptive and maladaptive, is shaped by a complex interaction of biological, cultural, and economic forces.

This book is organized into three parts. Part I provides the reader with an understanding of how the psychological, career, and athletic development of boys is shaped by a complex interaction of biological, social, cultural, and economic forces. Part II covers cultural considerations pertaining to counseling with African American, Asian American, Hispanic American, Native American, and White, Non-Hispanic boys. Part III addresses special populations of boys, including gay boys, teenage fathers, sexually abused boys, boy sexual offenders, developmentally disabled boys, shy and anxious boys, depressed boys, bullies, male youth gangs, and boy substance abusers.
