A quantitative study looking at the relationship between ideas and practices of masculinity: Paul

Paul Bushell is an Intern Psychologist. His study builds on from an honours project conducted at The University of KwaZulu-Natal, this research has attempted to further explore the relationship between ideas and practices of masculinity, and help-seeking behavior amongst young South African men. It has been hypothesized that the normative ideas and practices of masculinity in this context will act as a barrier to help-seeking behavior amongst this sample. This research has grounded itself in a social constructionist approach to masculinity, drawing heavily on the work of Connell (2000, 2003) and Addis and Mahalik (2003).
