First published in 2000. Women's Anger brings together, in an integrated presentation of anger over the lifespan, theoretical understandings, clinical experiences, empirical research, and the lived experience of anger for women and girls. Women's Anger offers a combined focus of feminist and developmental perspectives on anger, the psychology of emotion, and applied theory. It also focuses on the adaptive and functional aspects of women's anger rather than on the traditional, psychopathology-based models. The reader will be introduced to several clinical illustrations from actual clients as well as to personal accounts of women and girls talking about their own perspectives on anger.
