  Special Issue on the Psychology of Men's Health - June 2001 Icreasingly men's health is gaining attention from psychologist exploring the gendered nature of contemporary society. A gendered approach to the psychology of men's health situates individual men in their social, cultural and political contexts, addressing the social construction of masculinities and the effects that gender roles, stereotypes, and myths about appropriate behaviour for men have on men's health. Issues for a psychology of men's health may include, but are not limited to, men's relative reluctance to seek help for medical and psychological problems; avoidance of the expression of emotion; aggressive and unsafe sexual behaviours and attitudes; high rate of risky behaviours; relationships with family and work; and the negotiation of a diversity of masculinities within a diversity of cultures and sexualities.  

Men's Talk programme (UK)
My name is Michael Flannery, Sylvia Brown from Liverpool Education Authority advised me to contact you. I have recently completed my Sociology degree. In addition I have researched, developed and successfully delivered prevention programmes for young males in Liverpool schools. The programmes are aimed at prevention of violence, suicide, criminal involvement, alcohol and substance misuse. The programmes are named, Men's Talk and Young Men's Talk and explore the complexities of masculinities and seek to equip the young males with positive emotional coping skills.
My background was co-facilitating the male perpetrators of domestic violence programme at the Zero Tolerance initiative and co-facilitating men's health groups in a variety of settings.

THE charity Refuge provides the following statistics on domestic violence:
ONE woman in four will experience abuse from her partner at some point in her life;
ONE woman in nine is severely beaten by her partner every year;
IN 1997, 55,000 UK women moved into refuge accommodation to escape domestic violence;
SINCE 1981 the largest increase in violent crimes has been incidents of domestic violence;
DOMESTIC violence is still the least likely crime to be reported to the police only one in three crimes resulting in injury are reported; and
IN 90 per cent of domestic incidents children were in the same or the next room.

The City of Edinburgh Council   (Daphne 2001)
Male Violence Against Women : Multi-agency Intervention.  
Our research indicates that across Europe there are very few support programmes for violent men, in  particular those who have not been through the criminal justice system. The City of Edinburgh  Council intends to establish an accessible service for men who voluntary wish to address their  violent behaviour, which will, innovatively, be integrated within the existing multidisciplinary  work being undertaken with the City on the issue of male violence against women, children and  young people. The ultimate aim is to shape future services to reduce the number of women, children  and young people affected by male violence. The pilot will include: good practice exchange with  European partners; staff training; testing the transferability of the Edinburgh approach; establishing a  group of local practitioners to go on to develop service provision; monitoring, evaluating and  disseminating of the project results.

Gender, Masculinity and Violence : Breaking the Chains.
This project, Gender, Masculinity and Violence, aims to raise awareness and knowledge about ways  of working to promote a masculinity which confronts gender violence.  The further aim is that  solidarity, networking and linkages be developed to strengthen work in this area with the focus on  building support among interested groups and organisations in Europe.  This will be done through  raising awareness within Europe by disseminating information about groundbreaking work on this  issue taking place in Nicaragua and the Caribbean and agreeing follow-up strategies and actions that  such groups can carry out to help sustain such work.  It will be done by means of :  Production of a Manual on Masculinity and Gender for distribution in the UK and Europe. A Conference on Gender, Masculinity and Violence in Development linking UK and European practitioners and academics with Third world practitioners.  A speaking tour/visitor interchange with representatives from three partner organisations from  Nicaragua and Dominican Republic to visit United Kingdom, Ireland, Spain and Belgium.. A participatory evaluation and follow-up planning session with participants from the North and  South, who will be taking part in these events in Europe, with the aim of agreeing strategic  follow-up activities.  Establishment of a web-page within the CIIR web-site on Gender, Masculinity and Violence.
