Cultural Resistance: Challenging Beliefs about Men, Women, and Therapy
In everyday life--in relationships, in various institutions, in texts--cultural premises influence and sometimes limit individuals’thoughts, actions, and ideas. Cultural Resistance: Challenging Beliefs About Men, Women, and Therapy analyzes cultural constraints and encourages therapists, individuals, and communities to practice cultural resistance on a daily basis, allowing for the realization of diverse and suppressed knowledges.
Cultural Resistance shows general patterns by which some ideas in a culture become accepted and others are marginalized. It proposes ways individuals and communities can resist the hold of limiting ideas on their lives. In the postmodern tradition, Editor Kathy Weingarten brings together authors who ask and offer answers to the question, “What is not present in our thinking?” Each chapter invites therapists to extend their thinking about the scope of their work.
