The interest in gender-reflective counseling abroad and a growing number of multilingual counseling services in Germany have created demand for an English translation of the guide since its publication in 2022. As part of the project „Greater involvement of men in gender equality policy – networking, counselling, addressing and support“ funded by the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth, the Federal Forum for Men has republished the guide to gender-reflective counseling for boys, men and fathers in an English translation. With the English translation, the guide now also gives professionals without knowledge of the German language an overview of the topic of »men’s counselling«.
This guide has an introductory nature and aims to encourage people to deal more intensively with questions about masculinity in the context of men’s counselling. To this end, the guide addresses conceptual and methodological questions, provides pracitcal examples and offers further advice.
