I have been working with men and boys who have faced trauma for many years. Much of my efforts have been in helping them understand their own process and helping them through it. This page will take a different approach. It will instead focus on helping women understand the men and boys in their lives with the hopes that a deeper understanding will breed closeness and intimacy.
The first entry will be a blog post borrowed from my site menaregood.com titled “Ladies – How can you get emotionally close to the men you love?” The title says it all. Here’s a link to that post.
The second entry has to do with something that thwarted my understanding for years, it looks at how and why men value keeping their emotional pain invisible. Men are very good at this. So good that you likely don’t have a clue about what he does to heal himself. After reading this post you will have a better idea of the four reasons that men keep their emotional pain invisible. Once we have a better idea of how and why this happens it opens up a new world in helping them heal. You can see the artlcle here
