Article The Good Men Project: Men, Electric Shock, Feelings



Here is my most recent guest post for The Good Men Project, Preferring Electric Shock to the Shock of Being Alone. A recent study by psychologist Timothy Wilson and his colleagues at U.Va. showed results that 67% of male participants choose to engage in electric shock versus be with their own thoughts. Upon hearing the results of this study I began to think about the men I have seen in my practice and their relationship to their feelings and thoughts, as well as to how this study might impact couples.

The links below lead to articles I’ve written for other websites.

I was pleased when my article titled “6 Things Couples Can Do to Make Room for the Emotional Man” was accepted by The Good Men Project. Couples often get stuck in a dynamic where the female has all of the emotional attention. This pattern feels bad to both particpants and ultimately damages the relationship.


The article called “How Stagnation Can Harm a Relationship and What You Can Do About It” was so popular amongst Relationship Advice Cafe readers that I was asked to write a second. In that article I discuss how even though sexual fantasy feels intimidating, it can be a valuable resource for couples.

The article I wrote for was intended to help parents faced with the difficult task of supporting thier child with a disability through the educational process. In this article titled “How to Talk With Teachers When Your Child Has A Disability” I discuss communication techniques parents can use to be heard by their child’s educators.
