1 Review
Women's Growth in Connection offers a sampling of the influential idea s emanating from The Stone Center, Wellesley College, about women's me aning systems, values, and organization of experiences. These chapters, about women's ways of being in the world, frame an innovative relati onal perspective on women's psychological development. The authors--cl inicians, clinical supervisors, and teachers--have been searching for therapeutic models that more clearly reflect women's lives. They are t roubled by models of "human" development inspired by male culture, mod els that define health and maturity in terms of separation and consist ently define women as deficient.
