Relation to Other Men
Pages 14

I had the privilege of leading an ongoing men’s therapy group. Several sets of men had cycled through and improved. They became clearer about their career and life goals, and those who struggled with alcohol problems had achieved stable sobriety. Many group members reported an improvement in their general mood and outlook. When each man left the group, he was able to say what he had gained from the process. In general, I felt good about the therapeutic experience that being in the group gave to these men. It is still surprising to me that something as simple as talking openly and honestly to other men can be so healing.
