In this latest volume to emerge from the work of the Feminist Therapy Institute, Ballou, Hill, West, and their contributors have done a powerful job of explicating current themes in feminist therapy practice, with a lovely balance of theory and application. The careful attention to the economic and social demands of the current political climate and their impact on feminist practice is particularly valuable for advancing feminist analysis of the role of psychotherapy in social transformation.
--Laura S. Brown, Ph.D. ABPP,
Director, Fremont Community Therapy Project
Seattle, WA

In the twenty-plus years since the original Handbook of Feminist Therapy was published, members of the Feminist Therapy Institute and other forward-thinking professionals have continued to push and prod-both themselves and mainstream therapists-to examine the underpinnings of the psychotherapy endeavor. In this volume, the editors and contributors present an organized overview of the most up-to-date thinking about feminist therapy and draw attention to the alliance between feminist therapy and multicultural counseling, critical theory, and liberation psychology. Whereas most mainstream therapy models have progressed beyond a view of the therapist as an objective agent, they generally do not provide a model for understanding the therapist's and, for that matter, the client's beliefs, experiences, and world view. The contextual ecological feminist model explicated here articulates a means of examining the contextual and ecological elements of person's worlds.

The authors of this volume have nicely illustrated feminist therapy's key tenets-to illuminate the multiple spheres of influence in clients' lives, to empower clients as well as ameliorate their distress, to appreciate the linkages among sociostructural, cultural and relational influences, and to work for social justice-in well-drawn theoretical explanations and carefully detailed case examples that bring us to the cutting edge of contemporary feminist therapy.
--Maryka Biaggio, PhD
Psychologist, Consultant, and Writer, Portland, Oregon

Book Description Springer Publishing Co Inc, United States, 2008. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The original Handbook of Feminist Therapy was published over 20 years ago, in 1985. Feminist therapy was in its youth. Since then, feminist therapy has evolved its understanding of oppression to include attention to race and ethnicity, class, disability, age, and the many other dimensions of politicized difference. Gender and sexual orientation are no longer assumed to be binary. From a primary focus on the misuse of sex as a weapon, the theory and practice of feminist therapy has become more sex-positive in general.This book shows exactly how feminist therapy has transformed itself to become remarkably richer, more complex and nuanced than it was twenty years ago. The volume is organized in a way that brings the reader through a complete overview of thinking in feminist therapy and is divided into five sections that examine: the context of feminist therapy in today s society, including allied schools of thought that share feminist therapy s tenets and the consequences of corporate ownership of therapy; the person who comes to therapy and the tension between recognizing the specific concerns and struggles of particular groups while also holding the specificity of the individual; psychotherapy through a feminist lens; how ethics and activism set feminist therapy apart from other approaches; and, the interplay between these elements and how they affect the therapists execution of treatment.Each of these sections consists of two paired chapters, one looking at theory and the other describing the application of that theory, complete with case studies to offer the reader some variety in clients, contexts, and difficulties.
