Few of my texts are written in English (in bold face).  To give you an idea of my publications, I have translated some Dutch titles into English.

  • Boys between Bravado and Timidity. Sex and gender specific work with boys (translated title of: Jongens tussen branie en verlegenheid. Sekse-specifiek werken met jongens) – Lemma, Culemborg 1988. Still available in some Dutch libraries. After earlier publications in the 1950s and the women’s liberation movement in the 1970s and 80s, this was the first book specifically about boys in the Netherlands. Considerable practical experience; the theoretical part considers, amongst other things, the triangle father-mother-son and social expectations regarding boys. Some chapters written by other writers (e.g. Trefor Lloyd from England, Franz-Gerd Ottemeier-Glücks from Germany and Mike Mooijen, Wim Kersten and Eelco Damen from the Netherlands).
  • “I’ll do it my way!?” Working with boys. Design for a sex and gender specific pedagogy (translated title of: “Dat maak ik zelf wel uit!?” Werken met jongens; ontwerp voor een seksespecifieke pedagogiek) – Coutinho, Bussum 1995. Many reprints with some updates, the latest in 2015. Report on a number of years of developments in work. Partially an update of the previously mentioned book, with more systematic reflection on actual practice and greater consideration for the interaction between nature-nurture and the maturation processes. In later prints, the latter part of the title has been changed to “…. Design for a pedagogy with feeling for sex and gender
