Psychotherapy with Women provides a clear account of current feminist practice in working with women within the helping professions. It has arisen out of work from the Women's Therapy Centre in London and brings together contributions from eminent women psychotherapists. A wide range of issues are explored including sexuality, ageing, family dynamics, disability and ethnicity. It will appeal to students studying social work, nursing, psychology and counselling as well as to a wide range of practitioners working in the caring professions.
