Treating men as a culturally distinct group, Rich Furman integrates key conceptions of masculinity into culturally sensitive social work practice with men. Focusing on veterans, displaced workers, substance abusers, mental health consumers, and other groups that might be unlikely to seek help, Furman deftly explores the psychosocial development of men, along with the globalization of men's lives, alternative conceptions of masculinity, and special dynamics within male relationships.

Furman bolsters his conclusions with case studies and evidence-based interventions. His cutting-edge research merges four key social work theories and explores how they inform practice with mental health issues, compulsive disorders, addiction, and violence. By promoting gender equity and culturally competent practice with men, Furman bridges the gap between clinical and macro practice. Social Work Practice with Men at Risk is a crucial text for educators and practitioners hoping to pursue effective, far-reaching interventions.

Reviews:

"Furman’s text is well written and an important contribution to social work education and practice." — Robert G. Blundo, Families in Society

"Rich Furman is strong in his description of the historical and cultural contexts (e.g., concepts of masculinity, global perspectives) of men’s issues and the assessment of men’s issues in practice. His book challenges the current tendency in social work to devalue work with men and argues that although men obviously enjoy certain privileges, they also suffer from certain challenges. " — David S. Derezotes, University of Utah, author of Advanced Generalist Social Work Practice and Spiritually Oriented Social Work
