Gender Differences in Fighting Depressionv

A study has shown that while visiting a psychologist for therapy to deal with depression, men are more likely to prefer a quick fix than women who want to talk about their feelings.
Despite the fact that men commit suicide at three to four times the rate that women do, men do not seek psychological help as much, the study said.
“This might be because the types of treatment on offer are less appealing to men because many psychological interventions are more about talking than about fixing problems,” said John Barry from University College London, IANS reported.
 “It is likely that men benefit as much as women from talking about their feelings, but if talking about feelings appears to be the goal of therapy, then some men may be put off,” Barry added.
For the study, the team asked 347 participants to say what kind of therapy they would like if they needed help.
The men and women in this group, half of whom reported having received some form of therapy, showed many similarities in their preferences, but also some key differences.
Men, more than women, expressed a preference for therapy that involved sharing and receiving advice about their concerns in informal groups. But women preferred a psychodynamic psychotherapy, where discussion focuses on feelings and past events.
Psychology might be more effective in treating men if gender differences were taken into account more, researchers suggested.
The findings were presented at the annual conference of the British Psychological Society’s Division of Clinical Psychology in Liverpool.
