Counseling of Married Men: A Study of Five Husbands Receiving a Minimum of Six Months Counseling at Newark Family Service Bureau in 1961
Background of the Study: This is a diagnostic study of five husbands who sought counseling services at a family service agency. Interest in the study was primarily stimulated by a reading of Florence Hollis’ book, Women in Marital Conflict. Miss Hollis selected cases of women who were receiving counseling, intensely evaluating each case diagnostically, as well as in reference to the therapist’s treatment. It was felt that this study was unusually concrete and practical in contrast to other studies that seemed more concerned with theory than with actual case material. The focus of the study was pertinent at this particular time since it served to illustrate for social workers the particular problems confronting them and their roles as a therapist, as well as to clarify these questions for corresponding disciplines and diminish the confusion that has existed in the past.
