The American Psychological Association’s guidelines for working with men and boys resourced more than 40 years of research which showed that traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful. Boys are best not socialized to be stoic, competitive, and dominant and are instead best socialized to show leadership, courage, and be emotionally tuned into self and others. (Pappas, S. APA issues first-ever guidelines for practice with men and boys. Monitor on Psychology, 2018, 50(1), 34-39)
