Dr. Ramel Smith discusses "Building A Better Man:

Blueprint For Decreasing Violence and Increasing Prosocial Behavior in Men,"

a book/workbook/guide Dr. Smith co-authored with his colleages Dr.

William Seymour and Dr. Hector Torres.  "Building a Better Man

presents a theory and science based discussion of masculinity in

modern America, but it also does much more than that--it interweaves

a diverse group of compelling personal stories with an exploration of

aggression and masculinity in the socialization of boys and men.

Where other programs tend to subtly denigrate men as perpetrators and

focus on stopping the problematic behavior, Building a Better

Man tries to understand the external forces that impinge on the

developmental experiences of boys/men and broadens the scope of

inquiry into their behavior by reviewing a range of external societal

forces that contribute to the problems."
