Special issue of European Health Psychologist: Men’s Health

The European Health Psychologist will publish a special issue on Men’s Health 
Catrinel Craciun, Babes-Bolyai University and FreieUniversität Berlin
Anthony Montgomery, University of Macedonia
This Special Issue will explore both empirical and theoretical perspectives on men’s health as well as attempt to understand how norms of masculinity are constructed in relation to health and well-being. We welcome contributions that aim to bring conceptual clarifications of the men’s health concept, new findings on predictors of men’s health and benefits of using gender norms, discourses on masculinity or constructs related to men’s health in different contexts such as healthcare settings, disease prevention and health promotion interventions.
Contributions are welcome at both the theoretical level (e.g. concept development, measurement) and applied level (e.g. evaluation of interventions, case studies, lessons learned from practice).
The intention is to provide an overview on the relevance of men’s health for different age groups, different cultural or socio-economic backgrounds and health contexts (from health care to health promotion). Submissions that raise additional research questions in line with the above agenda are also welcome.
