Men and the Mother Wound
"Any man who is consciously, actively working on his Mother Wound deserves support, understanding, and patience."
My name is Rick Belden. During my thirty years of exploring and chronicling the psychology and inner lives of men in my work as a poet, author, artist, and men's coach, I've discovered that many men are suffering, as I have been, from a form of emotional and psychological damage I have come to refer to as a Mother Wound.
On this site, you will find a short introduction to the Mother Wound as I define it in my work, as well as links to some resources (some from me and some from others) that can help you begin to understand what a Mother Wound is and how it may be affecting you as a man.
This information may also be of benefit to women, as an aid in understanding the men in their lives. Many women are also affected by their own Mother Wounds, so much of the information included here may be useful for them in that way as well.
