The Adolescent Man Box
The Adolescent Man Box is the first study focusing on the attiudes towards masculinity among Australian children aged 11 to 18, and how these attitudes impact their mental health, wellbeing, and behaviours.
In late 2018, The Men’s Project partnered with Edmund Rice Education Australia to develop and deliver The Adolescent Man Box. The research involved a survey and focus groups with adolescent boys at a Victorian secondary school. The study is the first to focus on the attitudes to manhood and the association between these attitudes and the mental health, wellbeing, risk behaviours and sexist attitudes and behaviours of Australian adolescent boys aged 11 to 18.
