    Interest in the psychological make-up of males now permeates our society, represented by mental health professionals, social scientists, community volunteers, teachers, ministers and parents who want to help boys and men to lead more fulfilling lives. The purpose of The Routledge Series on Counseling and Psychotherapy with Boys and Men is to respond to this demand by fostering the development of specialized books on the clinical process of helping boys and men in counseling and psychotherapy.

    "Can studying for a credentialing exam be entertaining? In the case of Dr. Rosenthal’s latest book, the answer is a definite YES. Rosenthal’s approach will not only help human services workers pass the exam; it will also help them cultivate the knowledge and judgment for long-term success in their field. My summary of the Encyclopedia of Human Services: Fun, useful, and effective!" —Meg Selig, LPC, NCC, author of Changepower! 37 Secrets to Habit Change Success and blogger at psychologytoday.com
