One Rule for Boys

Following on from my last post entitled ‘Less Sport, More Support, I found this on the Good Men Project website.
‘One Rule for Boys’ is the title of a new book. Here’s an extract and a link to the full article:

As a psychologist with the Colorado Center for Clinical Excellence, and for 9News KUSA-TV in Denver, Colorado, Dr. Wachtel works hard to provide the best outcomes possible for teens and adults in need of his services. Through his work, however, he has spent time working with thousands of boys and men that have been caught up in the criminal justice system. His focus on assessments and evaluating why they were in the position they were in sparked an awakening in him he wants to share with the world.

A common thread he found in doing his work, or the ‘one rule’ he recently decided to write about is “when boys are taught and encouraged to recognize and express their feelings, and to understand how other people feel―rather than being tough, unemotional, and clueless about the motivations of others―the world becomes a happier, healthier, and safer place.”
