Are guys really that different?

Yes. I just watched this TED talk by Phillip Zimbardo (of prison study fame) about what he calls the demise of guys. For a counselor or even an educator, this is fascinating. We might know there are differences in gender, but with studies of the brain supporting this, now we know. How can we use this in working with male clients? What might this mean for young males versus older males? High school student versus college students? How might the knowledge that brain development does not truly end until age 25? I think this warrants a view and it’s under 5 minutes in length. Great talking point. The demise of guys?
