"Dr. Ashfield's book productively challenges us to break the perceptual biases and misconceptions that have developed around masculinity. His book powerfully reminds us of our accountability as therapists to recognize inherent masculine qualities and how they can be
utilised in empowering men to shape for themselves – with the added understanding and nonjudgemental
support of their community – better mental health outcomes. Dr. Ashfield's book will undoubtedly be a guiding resource for decades to come."
Dr. Elizabeth Celi Psychologist, Author & Health Consultant

Doing Psychotherapy with Men

The Nature of Men

Elements of Masculine Psychology

John Ashfield

A resource book ISBN 1921008032

This book is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding and working more effectively with Men and Boys

Drawing from a wide range of research and a variety of disciplines, this book presents a compelling argument for rethinking many of the popular assumptions we have come to accept about men. For decades our understanding of male psychology and behaviour has been shaped by rigid gender ideology. This book departs from the politically correct status quo and proposes a refreshingly different view. The book also maps out a whole new agenda for the cultivation of manly character, and for assisting boys in their crucial transition from boyhood to manhood - from 'boy psychology' to 'man psychology'.

This is an invaluable resource for health and welfare professionals, educators, therapists and male mentors.

The Making of a Man

Reclaiming masculinity and manhood in the light of reason

John Ashfield

A resource book ISBN 1876087951

A book that cuts through decades of nonsense written about gender and men

Making sense of the issues of gender, masculinity and manhood, has for decades been bedevilled by rigid gender ideology. This book bravely departs from the status quo and proposes a refreshingly different view. Drawing from a number of major authors and different disciplines it crafts key findings into a compelling and coherent alternative perspective, complete with new definitions and suggestions for further enquiry.

Though offering a basic critique of anti-male feminism, it abstains from reactionism, and instead advocates a common standard of equity and respectful dialogue for both genders. The book challenges the moral legitimacy of attempts at social engineering and 'welfare' efforts that are not informed by the best available knowledge about what we are, how we think and feel, and why we behave in certain sex-specific ways.

Nonna Lina’s Traditional Cooking

Mary Purificato

Cook Book ISBN 978 1 921601 28 6 published 2010

As a child I grew up in a typical Southern Italian family. I had very traditional parents and life was not extravagant. Growing up, I learnt to cook as my mother did. No recipe books, just watching and learning. I arrived in Australia as a young child and revisited my home town for the first time in 1995. My visit to Italy was an amazing experience, which has since inspired me to return several times.

In 2008, I was privileged to have organised my own personal tour group to travel with me around one of the most beautiful countries in the world. We travelled around Italy for six weeks enjoying the cuisine from the different regions as cooked by the locals.

This experience has shown me that even the youngest Italian generation are still keeping up the tradition of home-style cooking. Although all of my children have learnt to cook like my mother and myself, I wanted to write this book so that future generations can appreciate our traditional cooking and be able to pass it down to their children.

I hope this book brings you hours of pleasure in the kitchen as it has brought me and the appreciation and love of real Italian food.

Eleven Days

Graham Guy

Fiction ISBN 978 1 876087 51 7 published 1999

Eleven Days is a sweeping saga spanning all the emotions as it takes readers on a roller-coaster ride to a big-bang ending, leaving them spellbound with its awesome intent. It’s also a very tender love story that weaves its way through an explosive adventure.

Katie McFarlane didn’t ask for it, but a chance meeting with Paul Redman was to send her life into a tailspin. From the normality of suburbia and a regular workplace, Katie is swept uncontrollably into the fast lane of wealth, happiness, uninhibited emotion, tragedy and sickening violence. As one day leaps magnetically into the next, obscenely-wealthy Paul Redman becomes increasingly determined to mould their future.
Slick Bennedict is from the wrong side of the tracks, a product of the fifties. Unskilled by profession, but highly-skilled in the exploitation of women.
Gabe Caplin... all he knows is the simple uncomplicated existence of running a farm. A kind, reclusive giant of a man from a suppressed and violent childhood, he wants desperately to love and be loved.
Mrs Cropp... a woman of mystery who takes up land. As the wheels of fate turn, Katie feels the touch of her hand.
Scarfe Olsen... brutality personified.

Graham Guy is an award-winning journalist with 33 years experience in the electronic media. From a rural background, he has travelled extensively and worked for several television and radio stations both in Australia and the United States. Eleven Days is his first novel.

Only Eagles Fly

Graham Guy

Fiction ISBN 978 1 876087 53 1 published 2001

A story of the big heist and the extremes people will go to for money. It’s a story, international in flavour, of love, lies, deceit, anger, greed, lust and violence. As the Weasel weaves his web of destruction, the twists and turns will leave you spellbound right up until the stunning last-page climax.

From the author of Eleven Days comes a real ‘page-turner’ of lust, love, greed and raw power. Franco, Luigi and Enrico Mogliotti were small-time crims. They felt they were ready for the big time. Gina, the fiery Sicilian redhead, by day wore a business suit. By night she was drawn like a magnet to that part of town with the seedy underbelly. The Weasel. Rejected as a child and as a person. Blind hatred of his circumstance made him a vicious but clever-minded killer and thief. He wanted ‘all the money in the world’. He became Public Enemy Number One. Senior Sergeant Ken McLoughlin, the tough cop of Eleven Days, in the toughest and most gut-wrenching assignment of his career, returns at the request of police and politicians to nail the Weasel. Georgette McKinley, the young, highly-talented and totally gorgeous television reporter. Seething with ambition, she learns quickly the cost of getting to the top – and the enormous cost of staying there. John Talbot, the Prime Minister besotted with Georgette. Josh Emery, the pilot. Ripped off and stranded, he’s given a ‘lifeline’. Bill Murphy, the former journalist, but now internationally famous author. He craved anonymity – until he met Georgette.

Graham Guy is an award-winning journalist with 33 years experience in the electronic media. From a rural background, he has travelled extensively and worked for several television and radio stations both in Australia and the United States.

Fiction ISBN 978 1 876087 65 4 published 2002

The criminal, brutal and almost genius mind of Hamish McMurtrie ‘Hacka’ Blanchard hatches a brilliant plan. With the aid of three former cellmates, he conspires to kidnap two politicians, demand $5,000,000 from the government for their release, collect the money and make a clean getaway.
Nothing could go wrong.

Savage Skies is a rivetting, fast-paced thriller, with Senior Sergeant Ken McLoughlin and partner Tony Delarosa in a terrifying race against time to catch the sadistic Blanchard, whose cold-hearted brutality shocks even the hardest-nosed policemen. Even the government decrees, “This man has to be caught.” As Blanchard leaves a trail of unimaginable violence, the police face an almost impossible task in this fast-paced, sweeping adventure involving a stolen aeroplane, the sun-drenched Great Barrier Reef, the Kimberleys, the slums of Poland, the opulence of Versace and the cattle stations of the outback.

Graham Guy is an award-winning journalist with 33 years experience in the electronic media. From a rural background, he has travelled extensively and worked for several television and radio stations both
in Australia and the United States. Savage Skies is his third novel.
