Sexual Objectification of Women: Clinical Implications and Training Considerations
Szymanski, Dawn M.; Carr, Erika R.; Moffitt, Lauren B.
Counseling Psychologist, v39 n1 p107-126 Jan 2011
This article focuses on the implications of theory and empirical research on the sexual objectification of women. Drawing largely from the American Psychological Association's 2007 "Guidelines for Psychological Practice With Girls and Women," the 2007 "Report of the American Psychological Association's Task Force on the Sexualization of Girls," key feminist therapy texts, and the findings from empirical research on Fredrickson and Robert's (1997) objectification theory, the authors provide suggestions for practice with female clients struggling with issues related to sexual objectification and ideas for the training of psychologists.
