What Is the Real Issue?

  • The real issue for distressed men is believing that they can overcome a problem.
  • Encourage the man that he has overcome problems in the past, maybe even worse problems.
  • Encourage the man that he has resources that he can use to problem-solve.
  • Encourage the man that he has friends and mentors who can help him to solve the problem.
  • Encourage the man that you believe in him and support him in his efforts.
  • Stand by your man. Support your man. Be there for him.

Experiment with Encouragement & Support

  • Understand that we have focused on dealing with distressed men and women differently; however, both methods will help with both at times.
