Interesting article.  Single-sex education was the norm until the 20th century in this country, replaced by almost universal co-ed education, and it seems like co-ed education is still controversial. -Lon

Today’s men are not nearly as strong as their dads were, researchers say | Single Sex Schools | Scoop.it

A man’s hands say a lot about him. My own father, at 66, still has the calloused, gnarled hands of a guy who did competitive weightlifting in college and spent much of his career grappling with 1,500-pound dairy cattle as a large animal veterinarian. I, on the other hand, have the soft palms of a modern-day desk jockey. My hands are delicate, well-moisturized, and prone to blisters if I spend too much time in the garden.

Gender Specific Recovery Programs – Does it Make a Difference?

Gender Specific Recovery Programs – Does it Make a Difference? | Single Sex Schools | Scoop.it
When it comes to programs and treatment centers, it’s important for anyone struggling with addiction to find the program that is right for them, but does it make a difference to have a curriculum and environment catered to gender?

When it comes to recovery, the more customized a program is for each unique individual, the better chance they will have at a lasting recovery. There are advantages to integrating both genders into group therapy to mimic reality, but on the other side of the spectrum, gender specific programs can benefit an individual and allow them to open up at a quicker pace.

Lon Woodbury's insight:

Single sex wilderness therapy programs have become more common in recent years, and this is because the results appear to be very beneficial.  Many programs are flexible, offering men, women and mixed sex groups depending on what the individual child needs. -Lon
