'Working with Men in Health and Social Care is a very welcome contribution to the stock of books on men and masculinities. It is especially useful for those interested in direct practice and policy applications in the fields of welfare, and for those who work with the problems men create, the problems men experience, and their interconnections' - Jeff Hearn, co-editor Men and Masculinities, University of Huddersfield and Linkoeping University

Working with Men in Health and Social Care is an important and timely book that introduces the complex issues and debates involved in working with men in a range of professional settings. The authors locate academic and popular discourse on masculinities within the specific context of health and social care settings, critically analysing the theory and policy that underpin and inform practice, and continually linking theoretical frameworks to 'real-life' practice examples.

Section 1 contextualises the topic with a discussion of gender theory, social policy and the occupational culture of relevant organisations

Section 2 provides a summary of practice models, examining practice with men as individuals, as well as in groups, families and communities

Section 3 is organised according to specific groups of service users and includes chapters on fathers, abusive men, physical and mental health, boys, and older men

This thought-provoking and topical book will be essential reading for students and academics in social work, health care, probation, counselling, and allied disciplines, and for those facing the reality of working with men in their day-to-day practice.
