23 February, 2017 - Sex differences in the needs of men and women in therapy

Time: 18:30:00 - 19:30:00

The latest research suggests that men and women have different needs when it comes to psychological therapy. This new information is beginning to cause a stir in psychology, and this lecture is a chance to find out why. Kate Holloway and colleagues (Martin Seager and John Barry) interviewed clinical psychologists, counsellors, and psychotherapists about their experiences of treating men and women. What they found out has implications for how therapy might be most effectively delivered to men and women. If you want to find out more, then come to the lecture.
