    Dr Sweet, I really appreciated the clarity of your presentation on a topic I certainly feel I need to know more about. I too would like to be part of the listserv. My email merrilee@gibson2.com
    Thank you so much. Oh, and something I wonder about--is how much of this discussion applies to working with boys? I have a number of boy clients, currently from age 5 to 14, and it seems to me that some of what Dr. Sweet has said about working with men may apply to working with boys as well.

    Dr Sweet, thank you for the interesting interview. I agree that we have not received enough training about working with male clients and find it to be a challenging and rewarding area in my own practice. I would love to be added to your listserv. My e-mail address is hseverson@gmail.com

    Hi Holly,
    What an informative and down-to-earth talk, with so many valuable tips and insights that seem like they should be apparent, but often aren't. Without intending to specialize in men's issues, I find my practice is filled predominantly by men. It was good to have many of the things I do with them validated by an expert and to learn about some areas I've not considered. I put some of your ideas to work immediately and had success! I would also like to be added to your list serve: vickiswenson@comcast.net. Great talk--thank you!

    I feel fortunate to have worked in the Partner Assault Response program for a number of years, gaining an inside perspective into the lives of men. This is invaluable training for all female therapists. Although I am not working with as many male clients, I would appreciate being added to your list serve to stay current and connected: nicoles@fcccnd.com
