Special Issue on the Psychology of Men's Health

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.

In 2002 the Journal of Health Psychology intends to publish a special issue devoted to the psychology of men's health. Papers from any epistemological perspective are welcome.

The closing date for submission of manuscripts will be June 30, 2001. Manuscripts should be prepared according to the usual guidelines of the Journal. Four copies should be submitted to one or other of the Guest Editors for this issue:
