Working with Men in Health and Social Care
by B. Featherstone, J. Scourfield and M. Rivett

Working with Men in Health and Social Care is a fantastic book which we cannot recommend too highly. Although it was published the year before last, we have only just read it (to our shame!) We wish we had read it earlier.

This wonderful book provides a summary of practice models examining practice with men as individuals as well as in groups, families and communities. It includes chapters on working with fathers, boys and young men, older men, those with physical and mental health difficulties, and those who are behaving abusively. It will be of enormous value to those working with men, or thinking about working with men, in health, social care, probation, counselling and allied disciplines.
