The saga of one woman's heroic recovery from the trauma of Vietnam

In this book (winner of the Distinguished Publication Award from the Association for Women in Psychology), twelve feminist therapists and activists respond compassionately to the experience of one woman and her recovery from her years as a Navy nurse in Vietnam. In fascinating detail, this remarkable book explores diverse theoretical perspectives on a single case study, providing views from a Jungian therapist, a family therapist, a behavioral therapist, a pastoral counselor, a psychodynamically oriented theraapist, and an expert on DSM-III, among others. The contributors all share a commitment to feminism and societal change, and their expert responses to the case of “Ruth,” a recovering alcoholic and Vietnam veteran, make for stimulating reading.
