As a whole, the contributors to this book represent an All-Star team of those who work with men.

Though most men are influenced by traditional masculine norms, it is an error to assume that those norms necessarily comprise all men’s sense of masculinity. Making that assumption can lead both to miscalculating how a man sees himself and to misunderstanding the influences and motivations that make him who he is. When the influence of masculine socialization is examined and explored in the open between client and counselor, a potential bridge can be built that links a man’s lifelong experience with his presenting problem (Stevens & Englar-Carlson, 2010).

Philip’s sense of masculinity had been strongly shaped by his family of origin and traditional masculine norms around work, sacrifice, and loyalty to others. He had little sense of his own needs and how to express them, and outside of his connection with his daughter, he was generally cut off from his more tender, caring emotions. Yet Philip felt like he was being true to his sense of masculinity and had been a dedicated parent; he worked hard to provide financially for his family, and now he was stymied and crushed with a sense of dread about how to move ahead.
