    Male Caregivers & Discrimination in the Workplace

    in Work

    There is a growing number of male caregivers to small children or aging parents in our society. Male caregivers now comprise 45% of all family caregivers in the nation.
    The average male caregiver is 49 years old. He works at a full time job though, and is usually caring for an aging parent ( usually his mom- average age of 77). The average source of the caring in this situation is alzheimers or dementia.
    It can be attributed to a number of different things though, including divorce, more female primary breadwinners in the family  and more openly gay men.
    Join Flex Hour Jobs as we discuss the reasons for this societal change and what we can do to change the perspective at the workplace.

    The Resilient Brain: The Male Brain & Emotions

    in Science

    Noon Saturdays, "The Resilient Brain," host Kathy Kitts


    Today we read and comment on excerpts from the book, The Male Brain, by Dr. Louann Brizendine.  Chapter six is Manhood:  The Emotional Lives of Men.  We'll follow a couple with a commentary from Dr. Brizendine about what's happening in the husband's brain.  Hormones and certain different parts of the brain come into play.  For example, a part of the male brain's hypothalamus, the dorsal premamillary nucleus, or DPN, has been discovered in rats, to contain circuitry for this instinctive one-upmanship.


    We'll find out about the two types of emotional systems we have, and why men tend to have a stone cold face when faced with a problem.  We'll also see an example of autocatalytic anger, and more.  Tune in anytime to listen, and feel free to spread the word to someone you know who might enjoy listening to this subject matter.

    What You Don't Know About Male Sexual Abuse with Donald Jeffries Mens Advocate

    in Self Help

    As a society, when we think of rape or sexual abuse we are likely to assume that the victims are female and the perpretrators are male. That is a gross misconception. There are many more female perpretrators and male victims than most of us are aware of. 


    Today's special guest Donald B. Jeffries, President/Executive Director and founder of Mariposa Men’s Wellness Institute, a nonprofit focused on the promotion of men's emotional wellness through education and training, is here to discuss the cultural blindness that exists concerning the prevalence of male sexual abuse and the profound negative effects this abuse has on male victims.  


    Researchers have found that 1 in 6 men (a modest estimate) have been sexually abused before the age of 18. And alarming statistics show that women can and do sexually abuse and assault adult men, though it rarely gets reported. The unfortunate truth is that because males simply aren’t allowed to be victims (or at least not allowed to be seen as such), they are are often more emotionally damaged than females by society’s refusal or reluctance to accept their victimization.


    The goal of this show is to raise awareness of the prevalence of male sexual abuse, thereby raising the level of help, compassion, and healing that is available to these victims. 


    This will be a very powerful show. Be sure to save the date and tune in .
