His literary works explore the utilization of creative expression, dreamwork, personal mythology and listening to the body as tools for self-healing. Belden’s book, Iron Man Family Outing: Poems About Transition Into A More Conscious Manhood, is widely used as an aid in exploring masculine psychology and men’s issues by therapists, counselors and Men’s Group throughout our global village. Belden’s book has also become a resource for men who have made their journey from childhood to adulthood in dysfunctional, abusive and neglectful families. A prolific poet, Belden’s poem Fused At The Wound, has been featured in the best-selling book, The Human Magnet Syndrome: Why We Love People Who Hurt Us, authored by Ross Rosenberg.
Inaugurated on November 15, 2014, the International Day of Prayer for Men and Boys’ mission is to bring together individuals and religious institutions of all faiths—Christians, Jews, Muslims, Sikhs, Buddhists, Hindus—for the purpose of embarking on a solutions-based collaborative journey to effectively address homelessness, violence, poverty, hunger, lack of real life options, criminal justice reform, restorative justice, ethnic and religious intolerance and physical and mental health resources and support services for Men and Boys.
