What's the problem? A look at men in marital therapy
Date of Original Version
This study examined the premise that men's lack of awareness of relational problems contributes to their reluctance to consider, seek, and benefit from couple therapy. Ninety-two couples reported on couple and family problem areas using the Dyadic Adjustment Scale and the Family Assessment Device. No gender differences were found either in the frequency or pattern of initial problem reports or improvement rates during ten sessions of couples therapy at a university training outpatient clinic. Implications for treatment and recommendations for future research are discussed.
