Description

Valuable information on feminist issues is provided in this book, which focuses on particular groups of women that are frequently overlooked in feminist literature. A Guide to Dynamics of Feminist Therapy takes an exciting look at the power, effectiveness, and forcefulness of psychotherapy designed for women--a therapy of change and enrichment. The effectiveness of therapy, and its liberating feeling, is fully explored. The authors focus on the feminist therapy process that deals with the equality, assertiveness, and empowerment of women, with the elevation of consciousness about sex-roles and sex-typing. Special emphasis is placed on matters important to women of color and other groups other than Caucasian.
