Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

16 Scopus citations


The paper argues that (1) full recognition of men's losses in divorce is an essential prerequisite to offering divorced men the emotional help they may need and (2) that since men mourn the losses of divorce differently from women, counselors should take their unique way of mourning into consideration in their treatment of divorced men. The article then offers practical suggestions for when and how to reach out with offers of help to divorced men, ways of facilitating the mourning process of divorced men in therapy, and issues to consider when terminating treatment with divorced men.
