Abstract:

"Fundamentals of Feminist Gerontology strives to increase women's self-esteem and their overall quality of life by encouraging education and by putting a stop to age, sex, and race discrimination. As a student or professional in psychology, social work, or gerontology, you will learn about feminist conceptions of retirement, economic issues, psychological issues, and social issues. You will also explore studies on old age discrimination and devaluation and sexism toward women in Western societies." "This book will show you how some women are experiencing empowerment through alternative health care, such as mind-body therapies, homeopathy, aromatherapy, and herbal medicine, and examines older women in the family context." "Fundamentals of Feminist Gerontology will provide you with the tools you need to offer effective therapy to women to help them improve their own lives. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET.
