A New Approach to Women & Therapy

Front Cover
TAB Books, 1993 - Medical - 359 pages
In the tenth-anniversary edition of this text, Miriam Greenspan presents a stinging and often humourous indictment of a male-dominated psychotherapeutic community unwilling to acknowledge the role of sexual inequality as a factor in female symptoms such as low self-esteem, depression and sexual withdrawal. By its failure to address the social roots of women's psychological pain, Greenspan says, the patriarchal mental health care establishment contributes to women's emotional suffering.
