What is Mature Masculinity? How Does it Develop or Fail to Develop?

An Interview with James Gooch, M.D., by JoAnn Culbert-Koehn, LCSW This discussion with Dr. Gooch about the development (or lack of development) of mature masculinity in American culture will be based on his 80 years of lived experience, his raising of four sons, and 62 years of clinical experience. Among the questions to be asked were: What is the role of sports in masculine development? Are young men looking for heroic stance when they shoot up schools or join gangs? Has masculinity become too femininized or does it need more contact with the feminine? What has been the role of Internet pornography or computer games? How has masculinity been affected by a culture of greed and lack of leadership in the banking community? What do we need to teach men and women about marriage? How do we understand denigration of the parental couple? Whose job is it to help men find meaningful work? Whose job is it to pass down spiritual or religious values? How are men and women different and how do we teach communication skills that honor the differences. James Gooch, M.D., was founder and first President of the Psychoanalytic Center of California (PCC), which became a Component Society of the IPA in 1987. More
