Men and Depression
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
Fredric E. Rabinowitz demonstrates the "deepening psychotherapy" approach with men, integrating a psychodynamic developmental perspective with a gender role strain perspective.
Dr. Rabinowitz works with a young man who shows characteristics of masked depression, in which the symptoms of depression are obscured to some degree but perceptible just beneath the surface of the patient's affect. With the use of empathy, along with asking questions and reflecting, Dr. Rabinowitz draws out the underlying sadness, anger, and feelings of emptiness related to the client's early life experiences.
