Dr Arne’s 2013 book The Making of Men, has become a best seller and is a practical handbook for parents and teachers of boys. The Making of Men details his model of Boy Psychology versus Healthy Man Psychology and the fundamental differences between them. Young men need to learn how to be the gatekeepers of their own futures as well as their emotions and it’s the role of the whole community to ensure this happens
As an internationally recognised leader in the field of adolescent development Dr Arne delivers engaging talks that provide adolescents with the tools needed to help them successfully navigate this critical time in their lives.
Dr Arne and his team have extensively studied the topic of Initiations and Rites of Passage from different cultures and communities and has given workshops and lectures worldwide.
Our spectacular bush property on the North Coast of New South Wales, YarraKoora, has been transformed into a Rites of Passage leadership training facility. People come from around the world to participate in life-changing workshops and camps that offer support, celebration and direction for the passage to adulthood, and for the people who act as guides on this journey.
The Rites of Passage Institute runs a 3-Day Rites of Passage Leadership Training residential that is an introductory level course and aims to provide educational and experiential training around the elements of a Rite of Passage (ROP) that will allow the participants to clearly understand the elements of a ROP, experience the elements of a ROP, begin designing a program and be aware of how to use ROP beneficially in any environment.
We also offer this training as a 2-day intensive training and ongoing consultation for the development of a tailored and specific Rites of Passage camp and integrated program for schools and community groups.
Dr Arne and his team have been running highly effective corporate keynotes and workshops with senior executives and their teams from leading Australian companies such as AMP, Small Giants, River Capital, Macquarie Bank, Lion Nathan and Merrill Lynch for over 10 years.
Our results-focused corporate training is designed specifically for executives who are seeking to enhance their leadership style and improve their performance in the workplace. This training focuses on developing communication and relationship building skills so executives are better able to empower others, resulting in increased productivity and efficiency in the workplace.
As well as improving key management and leadership skills for business, these workshops and presentations deliver practical, actionable strategies to improve all areas of life, both at work and at home.

I have had the opportunity to hear Dr Arne Rubinstein speak on several occasions, in my capacity as an academic. I have invited Dr Rubinstein to be a guest lecturer, as well as to speak at forums focusing on parenting and the importance of Rites of Passage programs for the positive development of teenagers. On every occasion Arne has been engaging, informative and inspirational in capturing the challenges as well as the great opportunities that are open to us as individuals, parents, educators and communities to increase the wellbeing and functioning of our young people and families. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Rubinstein as a public speaker, as his message is one our society needs to hear.
Dr Arne Rubinstein took the time to get to know our organisation and captivated our audience with a well-tailored and well-executed presentation. I would highly recommend Dr Rubinstein’s informative and entertaining presentation, which was a great addition to our program.
Dr Arne Rubinstein was a keynote speaker at our recent Australian Society for Psychological Medicine / RACGP annual conference in Melbourne, which included other eminent speakers Prof Pat McGorry and Michael Carr-Gregg. The conference itself was a huge success, largely due to Dr Rubinstein's heartfelt presentation, which was entertaining, informative and, at a deep level emotionally, inspiring - enough to make a few grown men weep. Dr Rubinstein was a huge drawcard. His words spoke with an authority that gave every sentence a special meaning. The content was practical and relevant; scientifically based, yet spiritual - something there for everyone. I highly recommend him.
In all our dealings with Dr Arne we have found him very professional to work with and inspiring.
He engaged the audience on an intellectual and an emotional level and used humour and warmth to connect to everyone.
