Real boys : rescuing our sons from the myths of boyhood by William S Pollack( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on William Pollack's groundbreaking research at Harvard Medical School for more than two decades, Real Boys explores this generation's "silent crisis": why so many boys are sad, lonely, and confused although they may appear tough, cheerful, and confident. Pollack challenges conventional expectations about manhood and masculinity that encourage parents to treat boys as little men, raising them through a toughening process that drives their true emotions underground. Only when we understand what boys are really experiencing, says Pollack, can parents and teachers help them develop more self-confidence and the emotional savvy they need to deal with issues such as depression and violence, drugs and alcohol, sexuality and love.

Real boys : rescuing our sons from the myths of boyhood by William S Pollack( Book )

22 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 1,451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on author Pollack's groundbreaking research at Harvard Medical School over two decades, this book explores why many boys are sad, lonely, and confused although they may appear tough, cheerful, and confident. Pollack challenges conventional expectations about manhood and masculinity that encourage parents to treat boys as little men, raising them through a toughening process that drives their true emotions underground. Only when we understand what boys are really like, says Pollack, can we help them develop more self-confidence and the emotional savvy they need to deal with issues such as depression, love and sexuality, drugs and alcohol, divorce, and violence.--From publisher description
In a time of fallen heroes : the re-creation of masculinity by R. William Betcher( Book )

14 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We live in a time of fallen heroes. The monuments built of men, by men, and for men have tumbled." With these simple but compelling statements, Doctors William Betcher and William Pollack open their searching and provocative inquiry into the nature of masculinity, challenging traditional notions of what it means to be a man. They begin with - indeed, take inspiration from - the ground-breaking work of women writers and scholars of the past three decades who have articulated a new psychology of women. ("If it turns out the Garden of Eden was not such a beautiful place for women," they write, "then perhaps it wasn't heaven for men either.") Drawing on their own clinical practices and research, the extensive professional literature, and a subtle interpretation of some classical myths (most importantly, the stories of Oedipus, Achilles, and Odysseus), these two Harvard Medical School clinicians give us a clear and persuasive portrait of men's true inner needs and desires. In doing so, they cast new light on such fundamental issues as solitude, authority, work, sex, violence, friendship, sports, and fathering. All this is presented without rancor, bluster, or a false sense of correctness. Rather than merely championing masculinity, the authors should inspire men's self-respect and foster a greater understanding by women of men's special voice
A new psychology of men( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Inspired by feminist scholars who revolutionized our understanding of women's gender roles, the contributors to this pioneering book describe how men's proscribed roles are neither biological nor social givens but rather psychological and social constructions. For the first time in one volume, the leading voices in the study of male psychology authoritatively detail how men's roles are created and how men's attempts to live up to these unhealthy and unrealistic models of masculinity warp men and society." "Questioning the traditional norms of the male role (such as the emphasis on aggression, competition, status, and emotional stoicism), they show how some male problems (such as violence, homophobia, devaluation of women, detached fathering, and neglect of health needs) are unfortunate by-products of the current process by which males are socialized. By synthesizing the latest research, clinical experience, and major theoretical perspectives on men and by figuring in cultural, class, and sexual orientation differences, the authors brilliantly illuminate the many variations of male behavior. This book will be a valuable resource not just for students of gender psychology in any discipline but also for clinicians and researchers who need to account for the relationship between men's behavior and the contradictory and inconsistent gender roles imposed on men."--Jacket
New psychotherapy for men by William S Pollack( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From childhood onward, men appear to be at risk. Infant males are more likely to undergo complications during labor and delivery and to have more birth defects. Boys often manifest behavioral difficulties and learning disabilities in elementary school. By eighth grade, boys are only half as likely as girls to aspire to be a professional or career person; boys are nine times more likely to suffer from hyperactivity and more than twice as likely to be suspended from school. Men are less likely to attend college and/or graduate school than women. Compared

"According to education statistics across North America, boys now perform poorly compared with girls -- and with boys of previous generations. What is causing this trend? What can be done to help both genders succeed? This program presents insights from experts in child development -- including Dr. William Pollack, Harvard clinical psychologist and author of Real boys, and Jean-Claude St. Amant, senior Education Researcher at the University of Laval; it also surveys male teenagers themselves about the challenges facing boys and young men. Teacher training, curriculum design, literacy instruction, role models, pop culture, and male behavioral tendencies are some of the topics addressed."--Container

Jungen : was sie vermissen, was sie brauchen by William S Pollack( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in German and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In seiner jahrzehntelangen Forschungstätigkeit hat William Pollack festgestellt, dass viele Jungen, die nach außen hin ganz unauffällig wirken, innerlich verzweifelt, orientierungslos und einsam sind. Woran liegt das? Schlüssig und anhand vieler Beispiele zeigt der Autor, dass Jungen einer Vielzahl von widersprüchlichen und unvereinbaren gesellschaftlichen Erwartungen und Verhaltensmaßregeln ausgesetzt sind. Wie sollen sie unter solchen Voraussetzungen ein stabiles Selbstwertgefühl entwickeln? Wie definiert sich das Wesen von Jungen? Wie unterscheiden sie sich von Mädchen, worin sind sie ihnen ähnlich? Was sollen wir von ihnen erwarten und was für sie anstreben? Was geschieht, wenn Jungen mit Problemen wie Scheidung der Eltern, Depression oder Gewalt konfrontiert werden? Anhand dieser und vieler weiterer Fragen, zu denen sich auch betroffene Jungen selbst äußern, führt Pollack seinen Lesern vor Augen, was die spezifischen Probleme von Jungen sind, und wie wir ihnen helfen können, sich freier und selbstbestimmter zu entwickeln
