​Emotional Intelligence in Men & Women
The different ways that men and women handle emotions are a source of frustration for many. 

When talking about an emotional situation with your romantic partner, what you may not always remember is that men and women process and perceive emotions in completely different ways. 

Dr. Kathryn Foster is a marriage and family therapist whose career focuses on helping her clients both understand these differences and come to an agreement on how to move forward in healthy ways. 

She explains the neurological differences between how men and women process emotions and how that affects your emotional intelligence. 

Dr. Foster also provides practical tips for negotiating the differences, bridging the gaps, and being more at peace with how you process and talk about your emotions.
