Overview

“This collection is an outstanding work bringing together 22 contributed essays by family therapy theorists and practitioners on the subject of women and women’s issues. . . . These writings reveal abundant creativity and enormous scope. The volume is fertile, articulate, and absorbing . . . . It should be mandatory reading in every family training curriculum in the country.” —Smith College Studies in Social Work
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.
