New Guidelines on Psychological Practice with Boys and Men
Let’s face it. When men are compared with women on a variety of psychological and physical health parameters, men pretty much lose across the board. Women outlive men; indeed, in every age group, death rates for men exceed those for women. In comparison to women, men engage in more risk-taking behavior, consume more alcohol, are more likely to use more tobacco and other substances, and are diagnosed with ADHD more frequently. These findings provide a somewhat dreary prolegomena (at least if you’re a male) to the recently published APA Guidelines for Psychological Practice with Boys and Men.
