9780826117052: Handbook of Diversity in Feminist Psychology

With the publication of the Handbook of Diversity in Feminist Psychology, the field of feminist psychology has achieved a new depth; the volume is a sophisticated and cutting-edge compendium that not only describes the state of the field, but also pushes its boundaries in important ways."----Sex Roles: A Journal of Research

Critical for all those who are in the field of psychology to own, refer to, and use. No longer are diversity and gender issues considered to be on the periphery as they once were....one would be remiss in not considering these factors in psychology.

--Florence L. Denmark, PhD (From the Foreword)
Author, Psychology of Women

FINALLY--A collection of work that is built on decades, if not centuries, of hard work from many feminists of color and our allies! This is one of the few books that delves deeply into the complex world of considering the human condition in cultural context, something psychology is only [relatively] recently trying to do. This book is a must have for anyone interested in feminism OR diversity issues. It is a great example of feminist multiculturalism and both fields (i.e., feminism and multicultural psychology) should consider it an example of how to merge theoretical orientations in a way that is fitting for real people. I LOVE this book!"

--Geneva Reynaga-Abiko, Psy.D.

This handbook presents a multicultural approach to diversity in feminist psychology. Provocative and timely, the text comprehensively discusses the cutting-edge of feminist discourse, covering major topics such as multicultural feminist theory, gender discrimination, aging, health and therapy, violence and harassment, politics and policy, and much more.

The unique quality of this book is that each contributor brings her own cultural perspective, values, and concerns to her chapter. Special emphasis is also given to the intersectionality of minority identities such as race, ethnicity, social class, sexual preference, and other socially constructed status differences among women.

Key Topics Discussed:

  • Intimate partner violence: perspectives from ethnic groups in the United States
  • Gender-transgressive sexual minorities
  • HIV/AIDS among women of color and sexual minority women
  • Psychological perspectives on older women, including transitions, cognitive functioning, and mental health
  • Ethnicity, disordered eating, and body image
  • Methodological and statistical issues in research with diverse samples
  • Low-income women, women with disabilities, workers, and immigrants/refugees
