Why Men Fear Women with Dr. Avrum Weiss

Today, I have a truly special guest. An award-winning author, a captivating speaker, a dedicated teacher, and a sought-after consultant, Dr. Avrum Weiss has left an indelible mark on the world of psychotherapy. Nationally celebrated for his pioneering efforts in experiential psychotherapy and his revolutionary insights into the theory of change, Dr. Weiss has not only shaped the field but has also mentored hundreds, introducing them to a more personal, relational model of psychotherapy.

In recent years, he's turned his attention to a topic that's both intriguing and essential: understanding the internal lives of men and the intricate dynamics between men and women. His latest book, 'Hidden in Plain Sight: How Men’s Fears of Women Shape Their Intimate Relationships', offers profound insights into this very subject.

And when he's not penning transformative works or guiding the next generation of therapists, you can find him enjoying the serene beauty of an island in the mid-coast of Maine, accompanied by his wife and their loyal canine companion.
