    MyNDTALK with Dr. Pamela Brewer - Men's Friendships

    in Psychology

    Dr. Pamela Brewer talks with 2 men - one: African American; the other: White Latino.  One lives in the Midwest, the other in Washington, DC.  How did they meet?  How did they and do they grow their friendship?  We often hear about women's friendships - rarely about men's friendships.  As we continue to honor Black History Month - and Valentine's Day :-) take a listen to these two men discuss their own friendship journey.  And if  you are a man - or know of a man/men who disavow the vital importance of men's relationships - encourage them to tune in as well.
