Men often express distress differently compared to women. Thus, depression in men may often be overlooked or misinterpreted which can lead to the condition being underdiagnosed. This could result in depressed men not getting the professional care that they need. This workshop aims to explore the ways in which male depression is manifested. Reference will be made to recent research evidence and suggestions for practice will be offered.
Who should attend:
Counsellors, psychotherapists, psychological therapists and other mental health professionals who work with male clients who are or who may potentially be depressed.
