The Effect of Gender Roles on Male Depression and Suicidal Behavior: Diagnostic Issues, Gender Specific Interventions, and an Integrative Therapeutic Approach
Research demonstrates there are significant differences between men and women on the experience and presentation of depression, coping mechanisms, seeking psychotherapy, risk factors and suicide. The course will examine the newest research on ‘hegemonic’ masculinity and how it affects depression, including male atypical depression, diagnosis, suicide risk and psychotherapy. We will discuss the contributions of Joiner and Maltsberger to understand men’s vulnerability to suicide, use case presentations to identify the psychodynamics and interpersonal styles of depressed men, and detail gender specific and integrative approaches to working with men.
