about

A groundbreaking examination of the psychology of homosexuality, why it leads to shame over one''s identity, and how to overcome it

In The Velvet Rage, psychologist Alan Downs draws on his own struggle with shame and anger, contemporary research, and stories from his patients to passionately describe the stages of a gay man''s journey out of shame and offers practical and inspired strategies to stop the cycle of avoidance and self-defeating behavior. The Velvet Rage is an empowering book that has already changed the public discourse on gay culture and helped shape the identity of an entire generation of gay men.
Alan Downs, PhD, is a clinical psychologist practicing in Beverly Hills, California. The former CEO of Michael''s House Treatment Center, Downs now maintains a thriving private psychotherapy practice and an intensive outpatient addiction program.
