Working with people in a therapeutic setting can be a challenge because of the social, psychological, cultural and ethnic differences that determine “maleness.” Growing men in the United States is a privilege mixed. In addition to the many benefits that man can affect the self-destructive behavior and / or the other.
American men are encouraged to focus on working conditions and supply. In the process of fulfilling these tasks, they can ignore the damage caused to themselves and their families. The American concept of masculinity dictates a way for men to think, feel and behave like a man who is nothing less than usual “girly” and therefore unacceptable. For example, men cannot really, or something to do with the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. But those who do not find what they understand a little better for women. Tom Barrack, CEO of Colony Capital LLC has certainly been a change of creative vision, if he dared to read Twilight, who had nothing to do after a business meeting. You can read the full story here.
Women tend to seek treatment with a younger age than men and are more sensitive to groups supporting candidates because of cultural conditioning. Sex is traditionally lower, by definition, considered to need assistance, either physical or emotional support. The boys have learned to be strong, courageous, independent and fearless. Boys grow up learning to identify with the action sports heroes and their ideals. True to these images prevented men from admitting a need for help or show the pain, both as a sign of weakness can be interpreted. Current models of masculinity were the fathers of the “greatest generation”. These men tend to repress tender feelings by denying the emotional needs and invulnerable.
Men and women show significant differences, why go to therapy (or participation in a support group). What brings people to therapy and what they are talking at the end often two very different things? At the beginning of treatment, many men do not all speaks at least about something important or interesting. Men may come to therapy because they do not speak, possibly at the request of a significant other. Men will often treat the same way they drive: instead of asking the way, they just keep going until they reach an impasse, are completely lost, out of gas or have accident. Even then, they may avoid seeking help.
The men maintain”phlegm” in times of emotional stress and often refuse to recognize fear, weakness, vulnerability and physical exhaustion, which add their willingness to carry out health care practices. Why therapy threatens masculinity is a very complex issue. For most men, the therapy is the opposite of masculinity. While the entry of the Act in therapy requires courage, it is also an act that the foundations of what the two most “manly challenges.” Until recently, the man was trained in traditional expressions of emotional needs as a curtain “sissy to see.” Men tend to overestimate self-confidence and emotional stoicism. Therapy involves a vulnerability that goes against the role of males. The company plays a role in defining this role expectations, which is played, why certain aspects of contemporary society to change so inviting for the treatment of more masculine.
What finally decides to free a man to enter therapy or support group is often a crisis in some form. This may mean a relationship breakdown or a series of failed relationships, burnout, or other traumatic events that leads to depression, anxiety, isolation or loneliness. For many men in this case is in the middle of life when a man approached the age of forty years, the classic crisis of quarantine. It is times where people can realize that their life is half over, many of their dreams are still far out of reach, and took on other duties. After all their time trying to find satisfaction outside of their own, they discovered that it did not work. For the first time they can turn inward for answers.
A person may begin to realize that could be the source of his discontent he is and how he lives his life. It can lead to the conclusion that he needs to change and develop more confidence before coming to the life he had imagined. This is a very difficult and courageous for a man to take. After managing to control his life outside, he is now obliged to recognize that he needs to be explored with the help of his inner life. A good therapist can offer advice and support to access a minefield of human emotions that can never notice or admitted to the notice before using. Therapy provides a safe environment, where a man can discover deeper aspects of themselves. By discovering the extent of his emotional and spiritual nature, he can learn his own authentic manhood clearly expressed.
Finally, testosterone increases the feelings. Men tend to suppress their emotions. Women seem naturally more in touch with their feelings, while men must work, but if they do, it’s a strange situation. They discover a facet of him any further, so that their relationships are happier, and they are happier.
