Changing Directions in the Treatment of Women: A Mental Health Bibliography.
The theoretical and research literature on women in treatment has increased over the past two decades as a result of the growing concern about the appropriateness and adequacy of mental-health services for women. This annotated bibliography, in six sections, is a response to the need to survey, organize, and abstract this new body of literature. The sections, each containing detailed abstracts of articles and books from the early psychoanalytic writings to the theoretical and practical concerns of the present days, cover the following areas: (1) theoretical literature on the psychology and biology of women; (2) criticism of the treatment of women; (3) the research response to criticism; (4) modifications of therapeutic practice and new approaches; (5) treatment for specific problems and populations of women; and (6) alternative methods such as assertiveness training and self-help.
