Voices of Feminist Therapy
Elizabeth Friar Williams
Harwood Academic Publishers, 1995 - Social Science - 135 pages
The feminist therapy movement began in the early 1970s, concurrent with Women's Liberation. Its early practitioners had diverse lifestyles and backgrounds, but all had a common goal of providing a voice of reason within a psychological community that still measured women's mental health in terms of rigid, submissive social roles. This book is the first history of feminist therapy. The contributors share the personal experiences and reflections that helped them define themselves as feminist therapists. They also look at the present and future of psychology and society in general.
