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.
A very interesting and topical text which provides students with relevant information.
