This book is about men and social work. It addresses the following questions: Where are men social workers located in the profession? When do men become social work service users/recipients (the terms ‘user’ and ‘recipient’ are used here to emphasize the degree of choice that different individuals may have in working with a social worker)? How is social work gendered? How do men’s ‘presences’ and ‘absences’ both within the profession and as actual or potential social work users/recipients contribute to the gendering of the social work profession? What are the particular issues that men social workers encounter in their work? These are just some of the questions that this book sets out to address while also raising new questions in this little researched area.
