Dimensions of Feminist Therapy.
Marecek, Jeanne
This paper reviews the current status of psychotherapy for women from a feminist perspective. It examines the sexist prejudices and biases of traditional psychotherapies and psychological approaches; notes the manners in which therapy has often tended to reinforce the traditional sex role stereotyping and the women's consequent negative self image; explores available corrective theories that would lessen sexist bias; examines possible models of feminist therapies; and places the latter in the broader framework of psychological and Psychotherapeutic theories. The author also relates to emerging alternative support systems increasingly available to women; examples such as crisis counseling, consciousness-raising groups, etc. are also discussed. The author provides an extensive bibliography on methods, research and practices of psychotherapy with regard to women. (NG)
