Back Cover

Attacks on masculinity, together with cultural changes in gender roles, have left many men confused and disempowered in their roles as husbands and fathers. Loss of power breeds anger and avoidance, which commonly harm relationships. 

Men need a new approach to reclaim their power for the sake of families and society as a whole. The Good Husband project has set out to meet this need.  

This book provides men with a roadmap to capitalize on their constructive masculine strengths. Taking inspiration from four ancient roles (archetypes) – King, Lover, Magician, and Warrior – the book explains how men can apply qualities linked with each role to benefit their families. The values and practices of these ancient roles are perfectly aligned with what women who raise children need from a partner: security, support, leadership, respect, and friendship. 

The wealth of knowledge, profound insights, and practical tools that Avisar shares in this book are based on research, state-of-the-art marriage counseling, and decades of Avisar’s clinical experience working with families and individuals.

About the Author

I am an Israeli-born psychologist and couples therapist who has been in practice since 1987. I moved from Israel to Melbourne, with my Aussie wife and two kids in 1997.

With my passion to support young families, I have specialized over the years in helping couples with their relationship issues. As an enthusiastic educator and therapist, I provide unique perspectives and effective solutions through counseling and workshops.

In recent years I have developed an interest in helping men with their relationships. I noticed an ever-increasing gap between the high expectations from family men and the poor support and empathy they receive from society. In response to this gap, I published in 2022 my book The Good Husband, in which I offer married men guidance on how to use their masculine strengths to benefit their families.

Over the years I have initiated and supported various social projects for parents and families. As an adoptive parent, I set up a network for adoptive families who raise children of African origin.
