It’s not uncommon to hear parents complain that their teenage boy is silent, moody and unpredictable.  How do you know if it’s just normal teenage hormones or if there’s something really wrong?

Making of men

Audio – Hear Dr Arne Rubinstein talk about how Rites of Passage can help boys successfully transition into manhood.

According to Dr Arne Rubinstein, teenage boys are naturally energetic, enthusiastic and passionately engaged with the world.  So what’s going wrong?

Dr Arne Rubinstein was a GP and emergency doctor based on the far north coast of NSW.  He would often see young, angry boys making bad decisions with their life.  He realised that as a doctor, he was just dealing with the symptoms; the real healing work had to be done outside of a hospital or a doctor’s surgery.  Since then, Dr Rubinstein has devoted himself to improving the wellbeing of young boys and helping them transition into good men.  A large part of his work is using Rites of Passage to restore and enhance relationships between fathers and sons.

Dr Rubinstein also helps men and boys understand the difference between ‘boy psychology’ and ‘healthy man psychology’ and why it’s destructive to others if men continue to operate under boy psychology principles.
