the major frameworks of gender: essentialist, socialization, social constructionist, and structural theories ( Fish, 1999), which provide lenses for further research. There are probably many more. Accordingly, there is much more research that can be done and is being done to augment and extend the knowledge of the value of the mythopoetic perspective of men's healing work.

In today's world of managed care and brief therapy, it would seem that any therapist and others in the healing professions would seem to be ethically bound to recommend additional resources for their male friends and clients. These resources could be from an array of mythopoetic support groups, weekend events, initiatory events, and other mythopoetic perspective events. The research reported in this book strongly indicates that mythopoetic perspective activities are helpful in the healing process and can be a successful adjunct to therapy in the healing of men's (and women's and children's) lives.
