Overview

Bridging Separate Gender Worlds provides therapists with gender-sensitive techniques and interventions to help clients understand the challenges of today's confused gender expectations. This volume is applicable to individual, couples, and family therapy, and offers practical techniques to lead clients to an empathic understanding of their own and their partners' gender experiences. The authors offer three models of interventions for working with different types of clients. They also detail various methods that can be used within any type of therapy: the gender inquiry, the gender role journey, and the coevolution process. These practical solutions and techniques can help therapists transform angry confrontations and helpless confusion into non-blaming empathy and change.
