Women in Families: A Framework for Family Therapyby Monica McGoldrick (Editor), Froma Walsh (Editor), Carol Anderson (Editor)
This comprehensive book, ideal as a basic text in family therapy and women's studies, addresses the question of how women experience family life from a variety of perspectives. It covers gender issues in family therapy theory, practice, and training; women in context (ethnicity and life cycle issues, marriage, motherhood, sisterhood, women alone, lesbian couples), and such special issues as work, addiction, and mental illness.
