His book, Iron Man Family Outing: Poems about Transition into a More Conscious Manhood, is widely used in the United States and internationally by therapists, counselors, and men's groups as an aid in the exploration of masculine psychology and men's issues, and as a resource for men who grew up in dysfunctional, abusive, or neglectful family systems. Rick's poetry and essays have appeared in multiple books and on numerous websites around the world, reaching an international audience of many thousands of men and women. He lives in Austin, Texas.
