The research of Dr. Aaron Rochlen has focused on men and masculinity, with a particular emphasis on men's mental health and help-seeking patterns. Within this area, his recent research has addressed help-seeking alternatives for men, non-traditional work/career roles, as well as the unique experiences of men with depression. Dr. Rochlen has also contributed to the academic literature documenting the negative physical and psychological consequences (e.g., depression, anxiety, relationship problems) associated with adherence to the traditional male role.
Dr. Rochlen has a secondary interest area in the use and application of technology within the practice of psychotherapy. He has co-published an instrument of attitudes toward online counseling services and has used this measure in a study addressing men's perceptions toward online versus face-to-face counseling services. Earlier in his career, Dr. Rochlen published research in the areas of career counseling and the use of dreams in therapy.
