Special issue on male psychology in the Psychreg Journal of Psychology (Dec 2020)

By Dr John Barry

If you haven’t already seen the December 2020 edition of the Psychreg Journal of Psychology, then take my good advice and go take a look.  I was the guest editor of this edition, with kind support from the Editor-In-Chief, Dennis Rolojo-Howell.

I won’t say more about the special issue here – you can read my editorial (‘Twelve reasons’) for an overview – but instead will lay out before you the table of contents, like a Christmas buffet for my friends. To download a paper, click on the ‘PDF’ link. Enjoy!
