Despite significant advancements in the counseling and study of the psychology of men, few researchers have addressed intersections among men's contexts, development, and health (Courtenay, 2011; O'Neil, 2008). The authors used Bronfenbrenner's ecological model (1979, 1986) to explore the relationships between masculinity ideology and adverse health outcomes. The ecological model is integrated with the men's center approach (Davies, Shen-Miller, & Isacco, 2010) and “possible masculinities,” both of which can guide counselors in the design and implementation of systemic, culturally sensitive interventions for college men.
