John's work in recovery, co-dependency, and adult children has positioned him as a leader in the field of addiction.
His unique approach to anger management has not only been embraced by the therapeutic community- but by the corporate sector and the general public. His non-traditional approach to therapy has been taught worldwide with great success. His two-day Mentone intensives have attracted highly motivated clients who want more one-on-one time than the usual fifty-minute hour can provide.
John's work with men's issues has positioned him as one of the leaders and early pioneers of the men's movement. His Mentone, Alabama Men’s Conference (co-hosted with Robert Bly), is in its fourteenth year and draws participants from around the world.
