Beyond Empiricism: The Politics of Marital Therapy.
Jacobson, Neil S.
American Journal of Family Therapy, v11 n2 p11-24 Sum 1983
Discusses the politics of marital therapy, using behavioral marital therapy as an illustrative model. Views marital therapy as inherently political with therapists continuously adopting political postures unknowingly. Inadvertent consequences of this insensitivity to the political context of their work are to reinforce traditional values, many oppressive to women. (WAS)
