Psychiatrist Dr. Jean E. Neighbor (1915-1995) gives the third and last talk in a series of talks about marriage (see also BB0507) sponsored by the Mt. Diablo Unitarian Church, given on March 22, 1964. Note in box reads "'In today's matriarchal system in the Western world, men are often caught in a painful vise between their own strivings for independence and autonomy and the demands and controls that their unconscious needs draw from women,' according to Dr. Jean Neighbor, psychiatrist and chairman of the Advisory Board, Contra Costa Mental Health Association. In this talk, sponsored by the Mt. Diablo Unitarian Church, Dr. Neighbor analyzes the role which men play in the marriage in America, examines the social factors that affect marriage, and catalogs types of neurotic needs both men and women are attempting to fulfill through marriage." This recording was formerly cataloged as BB0485.01.
