Craig D. Lounsbrough
“The problem with the ‘herd’ is that our voice is never ‘heard’.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Harriet Lerner
“In contrast to the silent, accommodating woman, a man who feels powerless to use his voice violates our very definition of what it means to be a man. Consequently, he may then seek to prove his manhood in the most problematic ways: by being tough and aggressive, by acting up and acting out, or by removing himself emotionally from his relationships. He may be in a relationship where no one is going to tell him what to do, meaning he won’t allow himself to be influenced or even moved by his partner. These are common male responses to feeling utterly helpless to right things through conversation or to speak with clarity, strength, and resolve.”
Harriet Lerner, Ph.D.
