Overview

Reinforce the relationship between healthy bodies and healthy relationships in families!

Feminist Perspectives in Medical Family Therapy explores the groundbreaking collaboration of therapy and medicine to form a biopsychosocial approach to health care. In this book, feminists from several fields of study offer their ideas, research, and personal experiences to show how gender, culture, and other diversity issues affect medical treatment. This invaluable tool provides tips and suggestions for interdisciplinary medical teams working with patients’ bodies, minds, spirits, and relationships simultaneously.

Medical family therapy is a relatively new specialty, and this book demonstrates its advantages and opportunities with an easy-to-understand, applicable approach. Clinicians, researchers, trainers, and students in medicine, social work, family therapy, psychology, and others can use Feminist Perspectives in Medical Family Therapy to examine more closely the medical issues that are most relevant to women and families. In this unique resource, you’ll learn about:
  • how both biological factors and environment create gender differences—and how they apply to women with depression
  • how the issues of power and gender influence the experiences of male and female medical family therapists
  • incorporating feminist principles in family medicine education
  • the benefits of collaborative care to both physicians and patients in a family medicine setting
  • using couples therapy in cases of vulvar vestibulitis syndrome
  • how a woman’s diagnosis of cancer affects the family system
Feminist Perspectives in Medical Family Therapy offers a variety of viewpoints from patients and providers, using hard data, interviews, practicum models, case examples, and reflections on personal experiences.

What People Are Saying

Claudia Grauf-Grounds
STUDENTS AND PROFESSIONALS ALIKE WILL BENEFIT from the array of information in this book, which includes case studies, research reviews, and training strategies. Clinically useful conceptual chapters artfully stand alongside stories of infusing feminist concerns into professional training and clinical care. Most valuable is the reminder throughout the book that issues of power and gender must be recognized in our health care delivery systems.
PhD, Chair and Associate Professor, Seattle Pacific University Clinical Faculty, University of Washington School of Medicine
Wayne H. Denton
This will be IMPORTANT READING for all those interested in medical family therapy and undoubtedly will raise the level of discussion on these critical issues. The book adds important new voices to the discourse surrounding the world of medicine. Gender and power—topics that have traditionally received scant attention in the medical literature—are effectively and persuasively raised in this new text by leading writers in the field. A COMPREHENSIVE RANGE OF TOPICS IS COVERED, ranging from relationships to training to personal reflections.
