Breaking the male code

by Robert Garfield | 28 April 2016
Category: Popular Psychology
Synopsis
Calling for a new men's movement, a noted psychotherapist examines the critical role close male friendships play in helping men lead happy, healthy lives. For much of the past century, men have operated under the rules of Male Code, a rigid set of guidelines that equate masculinity with stoicism, silence, and strength. But as men's roles have changed, this lingering pressure to hide their emotions has wreaked havoc on men's lives and relationships, making them more likely to suffer from depression, anger, and isolation. Robert Garfield has worked with men struggling with emotional issues for more than forty years. Through his Friendship Labs-clinical settings in which men engage in group therapy-he teaches men how to identify inner conflicts, express emotions, and communicate openly. In Breaking the Male Code , Garfield examines the unique challenges men face and urges them to abandon Male Code in favor of a masculinity that integrates traditional male traits with emotional intimacy skills. Drawing on real-life stories, original research, and his firsthand clinical experience, he shows how close friendships can serve as the foundation on which men can build and sustain deep relationships with all of their loved ones and in turn lead happier, healthier lives.
