How the Maternal Attachment Experience Affects Boys' Emotional and Social Development
This academic exploration of the mother-child relationship gives particular attention to its specific impact on male children and their emotional development. The issue of nature and nurture is addressed, as is the complex topic of boys and vulnerable emotions, with particular emphasis on guilt, humiliation, and shame; anxiety and depression; and anger and rage.
I’m a Psychologist who is passionate about helping Christian couples and single adults find effective ways to apply biblical principles and the findings of scientific research to their everyday lives.
I’ve studied the Psychology Men and Traditional Masculinity at the graduate and post-doctoral levels, written several books, and taught a university class on this very popular subject. What I’ve learned is:
- Most women don’t have a clue about men’s experience.
- And most men don’t know how to explain it.
So I put together a series of classes for women who want better relationships with the men in their lives. And the men I saw in couples counseling wanted me to teach them about women, but they’ve admitted they’d probably never attend a workshop about understanding women, so I expanded my writing to include them as well.
My Education & Training: I earned my Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) degree, with a Minor in Applied Theology, at Rosemead School of Psychology-Biola University.
