How circuit training for the brain can benefit men
New developments in neuropsychology can help males open up and express their emotions, writes Gayle Williamson
There are few things more poignant in therapy than seeing a man - indoctrinated since childhood to be strong - break down in tears.
In my experience, it happens very occasionally - but when it does it is powerfully affecting. I mean, it's just not what men do, is it? Or rather, it's what we've told men in various ways that they're not allowed to do.
I have great respect for anyone who enters therapy - self-examination is a challenging process - but my admiration is perhaps more so for men. It generally, though of course not always, comes more naturally for women to open up and share very personal thoughts and feelings.
