Overview

The paradox of the contemporary family is that it is both patriarchal and father-absent. Family therapists reproduce these problems by blaming mothers, protecting fathers, ignoring issues of race and class, and settling for superficial symptom relief. In The Family Interpreted, Deborah Anna Luepnitz proposes a new practice grounded in psychoana-lytic feminism. Since its publication in 1988, this intelligent, irreverent, and incorrigibly witty book has become a classic, admired by the therapeutic community and feminist scholars. Luepnitz's work has permanently altered the debate about families, culture, and psychological change.

Editorial Reviews

Carol Gilligan
Brilliant...a book of unusual wisdom and humanity.
Joel Kovel
At last, a book about the family that is clinically sophisticated and informed by a real understanding of society.... This book is a landmark in the field.
