Peter, aged 46, came to therapy distressed about his relationship with his wife Angela who was 38. They had been married for fifteen years and did not have children. Angela had been involved in academic study over the last five years and Peter had experienced her becoming increasingly distant from him. He cried as he faced how rejected he had been feeling and his fear of losing his wife. When seeing both of them, it emerged that Angela had always been somewhat more reserved and distant in the relationship, whereas Peter was more likely to want more closeness.
The therapist explored what it was like for Peter emotionally when he came home. He expressed feeling hurt and rejected, unable to emotionally connect, incompetent and unloved as a parent. As Angy had experienced Peter as distant and quick to anger, she felt surprise and relief to know of his inner feelings of vulnerability. The therapist prescribed a ‘welcome home’ ritual, and worked with Peter on developing a ‘softer’ more nurturing relationship with his children. Confronting self-harm Therapists can challenge traditional aspects of masculinity that are obviously harmful to the man or his family, for example: working long hours; neglecting his health; over use of addictive substances; expressions of anger to the exclusion of other affects such as hurt or sadness; domination and control of others and self-righteousness.
The notion of the ‘caring’ professions (Hugman 1991), and of caring itself, produces a powerful discourse, which creates images of love, affection, self-sacrifice and intimacy. This notion of care is embedded within the discourse of femininity. In this sense, professions such as nursing and social work are not just seen as women’s professions but the actual tasks undertaken by them are seen as women’s tasks. Women are defined as carers not in any abstract sense but in their everyday work as mothers, sisters, daughters and workers.
