The Absent Father: Gender Identity Considerations for Art Therapists Working with Adolescent Boys.
Haeseler, Martha
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v13 n4 p275-81 1996
Recent research has shown that boys from father-absent homes exhibit greater feminine role identification, delinquency, mental disorders, poor academic performance, and poor self-esteem. This article presents case studies that demonstrate crises of masculine identification for adolescent boys whose lives lack either a present father or male mentors. (LSR)
