Counseling Men opens the way for men to discuss and discover their fears and losses in conversation with clergy, pastoral counselors, and lay caregivers.
Counseling Men aims to help concerned men achieve a clearer identity in the whirlwind of change that is occurring in family and relationship structures. Philip Culbertson addresses the radical disparity between the stereotypes of how men are portrayed in our society and how they actually live their lives, between the media's macho, superhero, all-controlling, fantastic lovers and the fearful cogs in the wheel of today's impersonal business world, mortgaged to the hilt and worried about career and the responsibilities of providing for his family. . . Throughout, I found myself agreeing and demurring, but always being engaged by Culbertson's formulations. His ideas will provoke and comfort, sensitize and humanize those who take seriously the changing world in which men find themselves. An important resource for those seeking to minister to men.
