Description
Kantor discusses the unique characteristics of depression in men, noting that the symptoms and causes differ. He stresses the details of a depressed man's inner and outer life, beyond the usual generalities covered, and through a holistic approach that takes into account psychodynamic, cognitive, behavioral, and interpersonal aspects, based on his clinical experience. He outlines diagnosis, symptoms, suicidal behavior, grief, atypical depression, and hypomania in both men and women, while comparing them, then describes the causes in both sexes, with a focus on men, whether developmental, social, cognitive, interpersonal, stress, or having to do with personality. The final section covers treatment applying to women and men, as well as those geared specifically towards men, including psychotherapy, self-help, and coping with those who are depressed. Kantor is a psychiatrist, formerly associated with Mount Sinai Medical School and New Jersey Medical School. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
