Men and DivorceBook - 1989
Most men experience significant difficulty coping with divorce yet, because they do not easily or directly ask for help, they often remain an under-served population among people in distress. Hiding behind a facade of well-being and self-reliance, they often express their pain and inability to cope through alcohol abuse, overwork, or criminal acts. Some experience physical symptoms, become depressed, and, in extreme cases of psychological trauma, commit suicide or homicide. Focussing specifically on men and their reactions to divorce in a wide array of circumstances, Dr. Michael Myers offers new insights and clinical strategies for professionals who treat men in the throes of marital dissolution.
