“Men and boys are lost; they are in a crisis of hopelessness,” states Dr. Anthony Bradley, author and professor of theology and ethics at The King’s College in New York City.

Bradley is not alone in his thinking. The late Dr. Paul Slocumb, author of the 2004 landmark book Boys in Crisis, was one of many concerned educators, researchers, and authors who were and are preparing us for what may happen if we don’t begin to address the significant challenges that our boys and men are facing. Almost 20 years later, his concerns are still not being fully addressed in a way that has made significant change.

The evidence is very clear that boys and men in the United States and throughout the world are struggling in the workplace, in school, and with mental health issues at a level that is impacting how society views men and how men may view themselves.

The impact of the “boy crisis” is being felt everywhere.

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell explained during a 2019 60 Minutes interview “the peril posed by ‘young males’”: young males not looking for work, being addicted to drugs, and being unprepared for the transition to the use of more technology in the workplace is not just an economic issue; it is also a national security problem.

The statistical data that supports “the crisis” is well-documented in numerous studies and is explained in detail in Dr. Warren Farrell and Dr. John Gray’s book The Boy Crisis. Richard Reeves, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, is the author of the newest book on male struggles, Of Boys and Men. He has the most current statistics on “the crisis,” as well as some novel strategies that address three core questions: why the modern male is struggling, why it matters, and what to do about it.

“The crisis” is real, and in our Boys in Crisis webinar and workshop, we address the causes of the crisis, the implications of not addressing the crisis, and provide strategies and tools to help boys overcome their struggles. Participants will leave with a better understanding of male behavior, how males tend to deal with emotions, tools and strategies that may lead to success in and out of the classroom, and an answer to the universal question we too many times have trouble understanding: What was he thinking, and why did he do that?
