Mythopoetic Perspectives of Men's Healing Work: An Anthology for Therapists and Others

By Edward Read Barton | Go to book overview

mutual support group can be a powerful forum for men's healing and a needed adjunct to traditional therapy.


NOTES
1.
In choosing this qualitative technique, the intent was to generate insight and gain further information on the thought processes, characteristics, and motivations of movement participants. True to this method, variables were defined and hypotheses were formulated throughout the study ( Lofland & Lofland, 1984). The aim was not to end up with a set of findings that could be generalized to other samples but to develop a thick, descriptive account ( Denzin, 1991) of a particular group. The degree to which the account is applicable to other groups is an empirical question, answered by comparisons to investigations of other groups ( Lincoln & Guba, 1985).
2.
S.R.W. discussed the research proposal with Adam, who then allowed him to join the group as a fellow member and researcher. At the first meeting and regularly thereafter as new members joined, the researcher discussed his dual role in the group. This was never challenged or openly resisted by any of the participants.
3.
It is noteworthy that Bly ( 1990) critical analysis of masculinity begins by noting how the Industrial Revolution took men out of their homes and away from their sons. Ironically, despite this awareness of how social forces played a key role in creating problematic forms of masculinity, mythopoetic groups have focused their work much more on individual than social change.
