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 MenClick here to read the column by Dr. Morgan Sammons of the National Register of Health Service Psychologists about these new guidelines.
