His leadership at IPTM is rooted in more than twenty-five years of clinical practice with a focus on men and male relationships, and includes his previous role as Director of the Men’s Resource Center in Holland, Mich., which he established in 1997 as an agency focused on men and men’s issues.

Donaldson is the co-author of Mascupathy: Understanding and Healing the Malaise of American Manhood (May 2014), Restorative Treatment (2009), and Stop Hurting the Woman You Love: Breaking the Cycle of Abusive Behavior (Hazelden, 2006). A former Psychology and English instructor at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Mich., Donaldson has provided workshops and trainings for other therapists, court personnel, and health care professionals on batterer intervention and chemical dependency among men. He also facilitates long- and short-term workshops and therapy groups for men facing internal and relational challenges.
