MEN AND WOMEN
“Women need to feel loved
and men need to feel needed.”
Rita Mae Brown, Riding Shotgun
The mental health and life stresses of men and women can cause decreased self-worth, negative attitudes toward self, anxiety, and depression among other health problems.
Woman are at risk of idealistic media images, oppression, and role overload in work (as spouse and mom). They are more susceptible to violence and abuse, battering and rape. These issues in woman can cause such dysfunctional behaviors as anxiety, depression, and eating disorders, among others.
The common stereotype is: “Men usually do not open up in therapy.” In my 30-plus years of experience in working with men in therapy, I have learned that the opposite is true - - men do want to talk about their experiences in life. Their problems are usually related to family well-being, work-related well-being, and relational problems
