Description : "The majority of difficult, troubled, criminal, and even violent young men can lead whole and productive lives when given the right opportunities and leadership." Many of us feel disturbed by the destructive behavior of so many American boys today. Their rates of substance abuse, suicide, assault, gun possession, and homicide exceed, by far, those of boys in every other industrialized nation. But what can we do? Weaving together his life experiences, research, and clinical observations, former "bad boy" Aaron Kipnis examines the lives of boys at risk and offers clear and practical suggestions for how we all can help troubled boys become good men. Kipnis, a nationally respected educator and consultant in clinical psychology, was first arrested at the age of eleven. He spent most of the next seven years living in juvenile institutions or on the streets. Rather than surrendering to this downward spiral, he changed course, ultimately devoting his professional energies to affected boys and young men. In a compelling personal narrative, the author tells of his own transformational journey from runaway, street hustler, and jailed juvenile, to a Ph.D. in clinical psychology devoted to mentoring, counseling, and leading young men. This book tells parents exactly what they need to know if their son is having trouble socially or emotionally, in school, or with drugs or gangs. It offers educators insights into how to work with disruptive boys and shows counselors and community youth leaders how to build trust and bring about change with troubled youth. For every destructive or violent act that the author experienced, he offers an antidote— based on inside knowledge. Angry Young Menoffers compelling strategies for everyone concerned about how we can save our young men. Helping "Bad Boys" Become Good Men Writing from personal and professional experience, Aaron Kipnis shares both the riveting story of his own troubled youth-and how he turned himself around-and the successful approaches he has used to help "bad boys" become good men. Angry Young Men offers specific, practical advice for parents, teachers, counselors, community leaders, and justice professionals— everyone who wants to help at-risk boys become strong, productive, caring, and compassionate men. "Angry Young Men is an extremely important book that is especially timely now during our current epidemic of violence by and against boys and young men . . . Aaron Kipnis has seen deeply, not only into the souls of troubled boys and adolescents, but also into those aspects of the spirit of our culture and our epoch that have turned an unprecedentedly large proportion of our boys and young men into perpetrators and victims of violence."— From the Foreword by Dr. James Gilligan, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School "One of the most important books written in the last decade."— Robert Bly, author of Iron John and The Sibling Society "With stories of the triumph of human courage against insurmountable odds, Aaron Kipnis clearly demonstrates that redemption, human dignity, and transformation are possible among the most troubled of our youth."— Dr. Robert E. Roberts, executive director Project Return, Tulane University Medical Center "With unique passion and insight, Aaron Kipnis shatters the myths about troubled young men in our society. A compassionate look atat-risk youth that compels each one of us into action."— Michael Gurian, author of The Wonder of Boys and A Fine Young Man "A compelling work that deeply moves and educates you as it seeks to build an informed and inspired advocacy for at-risk boys and young men. Kipnis arms us with healing alternatives that are within our reach. Essential reading."— Dr. Mary Watkins, clinical psychologist and author of Waking Dreams and Invisible Guests

Description : Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder primarily affects boys and male teens, and the symptoms can continue on into adulthood. Consequently, clinicians need to be well-versed in techniques to treat this disorder that are tailored specifically to the needs of males; there are, however, few resources available to them. This guidebook provides a review of the counseling, educational, and medical interventions that can benefit boys and men with ADHD. Kapalka begins with a review of symptoms, etiology, assessment, and diagnosis and then discusses a variety of specific interventions: individual counseling, parenting techniques, classroom interventions, and group counseling techniques. The use of medication in conjunction with counseling is also considered. Throughout all of the topics covered, Kapalka emphasizes what it is like to be male and have ADHD and describes the impacts that masculinity and gender expectations can have on the expression of and response to the disorder.

Description : Young adult men in their late teens and early twenties are statistically the least happy of any group of males surveyed. What’s more, scholarly research tells us that adolescent boys and young men have the highest rates of behavioral problems, completed suicides, and drug and alcohol problems of any demographic group. They also tend to have greater problems managing their emotions and successfully negotiating close interpersonal relationships, which makes therapy more complex and challenging. However, when done well, therapy with young men can be highly effective and quite rewarding for both the therapist and client. In Therapy With Young Men, Verhaagen presents a comprehensive model of therapy with young men that addresses each of these concerns, beginning with the rapport and engagement process, and then moving to ways to increase motivation for changing problem behaviors and increasing adaptive skills. The book describes a wide range of novel, effective cognitive-behavioral interventions that can readily be employed in the therapeutic process.

Description : "Kiselica dispels many of the myths surrounding teenage fatherhood and shows that, contrary to popular belief, these young men are often emotionally and physically involved in relationships with their partner and their child. But without support and guidance from adults, these relationships often deteriorate in the first year of the child's life. Kiselica offers advice for professionals and policy-makers that calls for support groups led by caring male role models, bonding through sport before counseling begins, and peer-based recruitment"--Publisher description.

The Youngman who makes his first entrance into society should know how to choose his friends and conduct himself towards them.

It offers invaluable instructions regarding how to behave in the society-from dress code to dating etiquettes, from greeting capsules to kissing etiquettes, from ballroom etiquettes to the etiquettes of travelling, and much more. Read the book and explore the delightful world of gentlemanly etiquettes.
