In this book, Gary Brooks explores the "psychopathology of men's everyday lives"-the maladaptive strategies that men use to maintain a traditional male role that increasingly has come under assault. He then delves into the related question of why men overwhelmingly reject psychotherapy at a time when they need it the most.

Men should also take up the role of helping their women in performing domestic chores such as cooking and washing. Traditional roles are still needed for continuous growth and existence of the family institution. They should appreciate the fact that things have changed in the modern society, where women can now work in offices and earn income, which is the role that was traditionally considered as being for men. In conclusion, there is the need for all of us to embrace traditional gender roles and improve them rather than doing away with them as the media advocates.

Taking a therapist′s perspective, this book addresses some of the primary concerns women therapists have about working with male clients. It explores essential skills and competencies and examines how female therapists can be empowered to work as effectively and confidently with men as they do with women.

The author also provides guidelines for improving clinical decision-making when planning treatment and offers specific examples of sessions designed to help male clients deal with particularly difficult issues - such as becoming more effective participants in intimate relationships.
