Facilitating the Transition to Manhood: Themes from a New Zealand Study

From: Volume 5, Issue 1: Spring 2008, College & Young Adult Ministry Pages 60-75

Abstract

Literature identifies individuals and institutions as potentially significant contributors to the development of gender identity in young males. However, the views of the men interviewed for the study reported in this paper, which was undertaken in New Zealand, suggest that potential is not being realized. The experiences and perceptions of the men interviewed provoke consideration of the maps and signposts that are provided for those on the journey to manhood.
