Trotman and Brody, along with expert contributors, view older women through a feminist lens and examine social constructs concerning aspects of aging, caregiving, elders' relationships with family, health, body image, and sexuality concerns. The authors define issues that are important to older women and their emotional health and bring into sharp relief some of the painful issues professionals must confront in counseling older women.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Feminist psychotherapists Trotman and Brody, along with other contributors, examine a range of variety of gender issues affecting aging women and address how they can be dealt with at a therapeutic level. Arguing that the culture's views of older women, aspects of aging, caregiving, elders' relationships with family, and health and sexuality concerns are all based on social constructs, they view pain as often being evidence of resistance to forms of oppression in a male-dominated culture. Hence, feminist psychotherapy should aim for the personal empowerment, dignity, self-fulfillment, and equality of older women. An effort is made to incorporate cross-cultural perspectives into the material. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
