Handbook of girls' and women's psychological health( )

21 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 2,331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Handbook of Girls' and Women's Psychological Health presents a contemporary view of psychological health for girls and women that integrates psychology, physiology, society, and culture. A range of 50 chapters integrates current research, scholarship, and practice on the risks and protective factors that influence women's health and well-being across the life span. Within and biopsychosocial framework, the Handbook explores mind and body, risks and resilience, research and interventions, cultural diversity, and public policy." "This Handbook underscores the importance of gender in the lives of girls and women developmentally across significant phases of the life span. Considering the importance of cultural context, this book illustrates how gender socialization in female development and behavior affects self-evaluation, identity processes, and the social roles that girls and women adopt. Its chapters illustrate how externally induced risks such as poverty, discrimination, and violence present challenges to healthy development. Significantly, the chapters also draw attention to long overlooked and compelling strengths and capacities that provide a firm basis for growth and health."--Jacket

Encyclopedia of women and gender : sex similarities and differences and the impact of society on gender by Judith Worell( Book )

31 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and held by 1,408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of gender differences began in earnest in the 1970s and has since increased dramatically to infiltrate virtually all fields of study in the social and behavioral sciences. Along the way, it was discovered that while women very often think and behave differently than do men, industrialized societies cater to masculine perspectives. The "Psychology of Women" emerged as a field of study focusing on just those areas in which women most often butted against assumed roles. And similarly, in the 1990s, the "Psychology of Men" emerged to focus on the same issues for men. "The Encyclopedia of Gender" covers all three areas under one cover, discussing psychological differences in personality, cognition, and behavior, as well as biologically based differences and how those differences impact behavior. Coverage includes studies of these differences in applied settings such as education, business, the home, in politics, sports competition, etc. This title features over 100 In-depth chapters by leading scholars in the psychology of women and gender. It addresses critical questions of similarities and differences in gendering across diverse groups, challenging myths about gender polarization and the "Venus/Mars" distinction. It also features: broad coverage of topics from theory and method to development, personality, violence, sexuality, close relationships, work, health, and social policy; sensitive attention to multicultural and cross-cultural research; and, clearly written, readable, comprehensive, with helpful guides (outline, glossary, reference list). It raises difficult questions related to power, inequality, ethics, and social justice. It challenges the reader to revise established "truths" and to seek further information. It maintains a feminist and woman-centered focus

Shaping the future of feminist psychology : education, research, and practice by Judith Worell( Book )

19 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the collective outcome of the first National Conference on Education and Training in Feminist Practice, convened to explore, integrate, and create a cohesive agenda for training and educating in feminist practice for the next decade. It brings together the nation's foremost feminist psychologists to address how psychology can be recreated in keeping with feminist principles and practices. Shaping the Future of Feminist Psychology explores how widely held feminist tenets, such as empowerment, diversity, and the value of all voices, can be integrated across the field of psychology - specifically in the areas of theory, assessment, therapy, curriculum, pedagogy, research, diversity issues, supervision, and postdoctoral training. Each chapter presents a set of principles to guide future development in these areas and explores practices that embody these principles. This volume will be of interest to psychologists who wish to incorporate feminist principles into their work and to educators who wish to institute a gender-sensitive curriculum within undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral training

Sex-Role Components of Maternal Stress and Children's Well-Being Following Divorce by Judith Worell( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The frequency of divorce in America has resulted in an estimated 11,000,000 minor children living in single-parent homes, usually with mothers as heads of households. Psychological disruption observed in children of recently divorced parents may be, in part, related to the quality of the custodial mother's adjustment to her changed life circumstances. Loss of attachment bonds, changes in daily living patterns, excessive role strain, and the amount of continuing interpersonal conflict all contribute to the degree of post-divorce stress. These factors are compounded for the custodial mother with a traditional sex-role orientation; traditional female role structures contribute to post-divorce stress. Economic dependence on a male results in financial insufficiency following divorce. Subordination to male power results in post-divorce powerlessness and feelings of external control. Reliance on the husband for social identity and support systems results in social isolation and over-investment in the super-wife/super-mom role results in post-divorce role strain. Maternal stress may foster negative and coercive childrearing practices which are reflected in the disrupted behavioral and developmental progress of the children. Intervention approaches to mediate the negative image of single parents must include resocialization, remediation, and research. (Nrb)
Changing Sex Roles by Judith Worell( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This article reviews literature on sex role change in children and points to areas which need further research. Competing ideologies which support or reject sex typing of role behaviors are briefly discussed in the introduction. The sources of sex role change are divided into two categories: (1) planned direct intervention programs and (2) natural or cultural change, I.E., the economic, political, and social movements which predispose individuals to modify their lifestyle activities and value systems. Three natural or cultural sources of change in roles are discussed. First, the effects of the Women's Liberation Movement on the resocialization both of the self and of the other are noted; these effects include an increase in assertiveness, changes in perceptions of the desirability of sex-role personality traits, entry into previously male-dominated professions and changes in the presentation of sex roles by various media. Second, literature is cited which suggests that changes in family composition (size of family, distribution of responsibilities, number of parents in home) affect the sex role attitudes of children. Third, although little is said to be known of the effects of Title ix, evidence from direct intervention research is employed to indicate some of its likely effects. Five areas are noted in which further research is needed; discrimination among components of sex roles; connections between attitudes and behavior and the influence of ideology on research and intervention; techniques for measuring children's sex role knowledge, attributions, preferences and behavior; and the aptitude-treatment-interaction effects related to sex role stereotyping.
