Event description

Description

Overview: This presentation will give an overview of some of the implications for social workers of working with male carers and how gendered assumptions influence practice. Philip will draw on theories of masculinity, family practices and performing gender to reflect on issues relating to the assessment of men. Following this an interactive approach will be used to explore with students how gendered assumptions can be overcome and some recommendations of good practice from a recent PhD study will be shared.
