The discussion of working with men clients in this chapter is structured as follows. I introduce the topic by summarising how the ‘problem of men’ has come to be a matter for social policy development in the UK. I then explain my use of the term ‘discourses’ of masculinity, and the rest of the chapter is taken up with a description of six different discourses of masculinity in the social work office. Some conclusions will be drawn. I then summarise the implications of the research findings for social work practice.
