. . . from the minds of therapists on the cutting edge!This informative, innovative collection brings together the work of a group of "scholar-therapists," all women, who have met regularly for ten years to discuss family therapy, gender, and postmodern ideas. The major themes--feminism, community, and communication--are taken in new directions. Feminism, Community, and Communication rethinks therapy, research, teaching, and community work with a renewed emphasis on collaboration, intersubjectivity, and the process of communication as a world-making and identity-making activity. The issues of gender, culture, religion, race, and class figure prominently in this book.In Feminism, Community, and Communication you'll find descriptions of: communal perspectives for therapists that stress listening and understanding over interpreting and knowing the power of love and spirituality in relation to organizational consultation to an agency beset by racial division research on anorexia and what it means a mentoring project for rural girls the Bar/Bat Mitzva as therapy an ethnographic study of Lebanese womenFeminism, Community, and Communication takes an exciting, fresh look at these three intertwined concepts, representing a way of thinking and doing therapy, research, community work, and training that highlights the ethical dimension of each. The book takes the position that human beings are meaning-makers in a common world, and not simply objects to be scrutinized or assessed by "experts."
