Abstract:

"The volume presents a coherent framework for thinking about intersecting identities - including gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, class, immigration status, and religion - as they influence how a woman develops and how she perceives and relates to herself and others. Described are ways in which exploring multiple contexts in collaboration with clients can help them generate a fuller understanding of the psychosocial challenges they face and open up new possibilities for their lives. The focus is on the three major areas of "love, work, and play": family and relationship issues; work issues and career development; and health, spirituality, and self-care.

Rich case illustrations bring the process of therapy to life, demonstrating creative strategies for conceptualizing client problems and working toward mutually agreed-upon goals. Throughout, the importance of practicing from a self-reflexive stance is emphasized, and invaluable suggestions are offered for building strong therapeutic relationships across difference." "This book will be read with interest by psychotherapists from a range of backgrounds, including clinical and counseling psychologists, social workers, family therapists, and psychiatrists. Women's studies scholars and students also will find it informative and thought provoking, and it will serve as an outstanding text in clinically oriented graduate-level courses."--Jacket.
