From The Pain Behind the Mask: Overcoming Masculine Depression, you will discover how masculine development precludes your male clients toward the two defining characteristics of masculine depression: dissociating from feelings and acting out suppressed feelings in destructive behaviors. Depression in men is often misunderstood and misdiagnosed, which is why it often goes untreated. This unique book does not portray men as victims, but seeks to describe a man’s responsibility and proposes realistic strategies for change.
The Pain Behind the Mask is written in easy-to-follow question and answer format to guide you through various subtopics discussed within each general area. Through The Pain Behind the Mask, you will learn new techniques and strategies to help improve the lives of men who suffer from depression by:

"This new book uncovers the root causes that can destroy important relationships. "For many men, " explain the authors, "sadness and despair find a distorted expression in immature, aloof, selfish, or cruel behaviors that disguise men's emotional pain to others and even to themselves ... Masculine depression often goes unrecognized and untreated." "In addition, " they add, "this process leads to destructive behavior in important relationships. Life is hard, and it is inevitable that a person (who has masculine depression) ... will carry their emotional pain to their wives, their children, and their friends.""--BOOK JACKET.Review:
"Focuses on our most destructive social and mental health problem-masculine depression-which goes unrecognized and leads to the violence, abuse, and self-neglect that wreck so many lives. Their book could not be clearer or more compassionate. It is right on target and sorely needed." -- Frank S. Pittman, III, MD, Author, Man Enough: Fathers, Sons, and the Search for Masculinity and Grow Up! How Taking Responsibility Can Make You a Happy Adult
"Lynch and Kilmartin address a central problem in the contemporary crisis of gender, namely the male tendency to experience depression as a disconnection from self and others. The Pain Behind The Mask delineates the damaging effects of masculine depression . . . and points the way for men to heal in the context of relationships." -- Ronald F. Levant, EdD, Co-author, Masculinity Reconstructed, and Dean, Department of Psychology, Nova Southeastern University
