Shrink Rap Radio #165 - Irritable Male Syndrome

This is an old episode of Shrink Rap Radio that focuses on how and why males get and stay irritable. I am not a huge fan of Diamond's work - he is a traditional Freudian in many ways. However, in other ways, he is one of the few psychologists looking at male development and identity issues.

His PhD dissertation, Gender and Depression, broke new ground in creating a better evaluation system for diagnosing and treating depression in men and women.

He lives with his wife, Carlin, on Shimmins Ridge, above Bloody Run Creek, in Northern California. They are proud parents of five grown children and eleven grandchildren.
