  • The Support Needs of Men Who Are Bullied at Work
      Abstract: Very little research examining the support needs of men who have been bullied at
      work has been done. To address this gap, we used a qualitative descriptive approach
      to conduct secondary analysis of data from two existing qualitative studies focused
      on men’s experiences of being bullied. Men wanted and sought support from many
      sources including workplace and organizational professionals, health care professionals,
      and others including family, friends, and co-workers. Men were disappointed
      by the nature and availability of workplace support to address the problem
      and unfortunately, few were able to find help to put a stop to the bullying. As a result,
      men faced ongoing bullying and health consequences. While help and validation
      from health care professionals and others was important, men consistently
      identified that without workplace support to put a stop to the bullying, it was difficult
      to maintain health and persist at work. These findings have significant implications
      for workplace health and safety and workforce participation among men.

  • Battling the Stigma: Combat Veterans’ Use of Social Support in an
           Online PTSD Forum
      Abstract: Guided by the social support framework, this article identifies types of support
      sought and received by combat veterans with PTSD in an online forum. We conducted
      a thematic analysis of 466 posts by 63 military personnel and partners to
      identify types and frequencies of social support. Findings are partially consistent
      with previous investigations of support groups. The most common type of support
      was informational support, followed by network/community support, and idiosyncratic
      types of support. However, emotional support was not featured as prominently
      in comparison to support groups reported on in past research. In addition, our analysis
      identified concern for forum members and conflict/resolution as two new social
      support sub-categories. Selective coding revealed three broad themes of social support
      in the PTSD forum: stigma, group identification, and embracing conflict. We
      discuss implications and directions for future research using the social support

  • Men’s Constructions of Mothering: Growing Up in Father-Absent
      Abstract: The purpose of this article is to consider adult men’s retrospective constructions of
      mothering and growing up in father-absent households. An exploratory qualitative
      design using semi-structured interviews was utilised and interviews were conducted
      with 21 adult men. Collected data were transcribed verbatim and subject to thematic
      analysis. Findings revealed memories of loss and missed opportunities,
      poverty and disadvantage. Men recollected their mothers attempting to balance their
      physical and financial security with their emotional needs. Findings from this study
      suggest that men who experience father absence from an early age can experience
      an ongoing sense of loss and disadvantage that may be carried throughout life. We
      recommend this population of men be provided with opportunities to disclose feelings
      about their experiences as father-absent boys when coming into contact with
      health and social services.

  • The Impact of Masculinity Ideologies and Conjugal Involvement on Sexual
           Risk-Taking among Young Jamaican Males
      Abstract: The importance of attitudes in explaining the gap between knowledge and behavior
      in sexual practices has been the focus of the global reproductive health research
      agenda for the last two decades. However little has been done to uncover the role
      of masculinity ideologies in assessing sexual risk-taking in the Caribbean. The association
      between two dimensions of masculinity based on a new macho scale, selected
      socio-demographic characteristics and inconsistent condom use within
      different conjugal arrangements was assessed using data from the 2008 Jamaica
      Reproductive Health Survey. This included 1,764 sexually active men aged 15–24.
      Logistic regression analysis revealed that the Macho Scale consistently predicted
      inconsistent condom use with a non-steady partner and a steady partner. While dominance/
      virility placed men at risk with both types of partners, procreative desire was
      not significantly associated with the avoidance of condom use. Future reproductive
      health programs for young men should focus more directly on factors shaping male
      identity that are linked to risky behaviors.

  • Can Social Integration and Social Support Help to Explain Racial
           Disparities in Health Care Utilization Among Men with Diabetes'
      Abstract: Objective: Discovering the mechanisms through which racial and ethnic background
      influence health is critical to better understanding racial disparities in health among
      men with a diabetes diagnosis. The present study examines whether social support
      and social integration mediate or buffer the relationship between race and health
      care utilization among U.S. men. Method: This study used a sub-sample from the
      2001 National Health Interview Survey that included Latino, African American, non-
      Latino White men living with self-reported diabetes (n = 7,148). Results: Findings
      revealed that African American men with high levels of social integration were less
      likely to forego care (OR = 0.234, [CI = 0.053,1.045]). Also, African American men
      who did not attend church had higher odds of foregoing care (OR = 0.222, [CI =
      0.110,0.448]). Conclusions: The effect of social networks operate differently for
      African American men with diabetes compared to non-Latino white men. Identifying
      racial differences in the influence of social networks on health will assist in developing
      interventions that may help to decrease gender and race gaps in health for
      men with diabetes.

  • The Intersection Between Masculinity and Health Among Rural Immigrant
           Latino Men
      Abstract: Latino men experience health disparities in STI/HIV, diabetes, hypertension, and
      cancer. Gender roles likely play a role in risk behaviors and outcomes; however,
      there has been little focus on masculinity in Latino men. We conducted 20 semistructured
      interviews with Latino men living in North Carolina. The interviews, conducted
      by a trained bilingual/bicultural Latino male, prompted discussion around
      work, family, and stress. Four themes were identified: masculine roles of being a
      family provider and protector, sources of stress, family responsibility and interconnectedness
      to health, and coping mechanism. For Latino men, masculinity may have
      both positive and negative influences on health. For example, the role of family
      provider may contribute to coping and be a stressor simultaneously. Future research
      should examine masculinity as a positive and a negative health influence and the additional
      impacts of gender roles on men’s health.
