Abstract:

This covers both the traditional and the most current and contemporary theories from a comparative theory perspective. Intended to be a source for comparison purposes, it is organized to include contemporary developments in traditional lifespan of the theory, coverage of the research that supports it, an analysis of the validity of that research and a discussion of updated contemporary issues. It also includes new content on ecofeminism; neurobiology, neurotransmission and behavior ; feminist standpoint theory; theories of bisexual and transgender identity development; the role of shame in women's development ; ethnic/cultural identity development and cultural competence; theories of political economy, and transpersonal theory.
