Psychology of women : a handbook of issues and theories by Florence Denmark( Book )

"This book is a narrative history of the 30-year struggle to outlaw slavery, starting with the founding of the American Anti-Slavery Society in 1834 and extending until the abolition of slavery in the United States at the end of the Civil War." "The core of the book consists of two sections. The first documents the 20-year political struggle to restrict slavery through a succession of anti-extensionist parties, starting in 1840 with the founding of the Liberty Party, extending through the Free Soil Party (1848-54), and ending with Abraham Lincoln being elected president as a Republican on the same basic platform as the Liberty Party in 1844. The second section covers the struggle by abolitionists to use the outbreak of the Civil War as a chance to rid the country of slavery using the executive wartime powers of the presidency."--Jacket

The psychology of women at work : challenges and solutions for our female workforce( )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 1,173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, women made up 46.4 percent of the civilian labor force in 2005, and that percentage is expected to reach 47 percent by 2014. Professional and health-related occupations are the fastest-growing roles for women, with computer-related, environmental, and educational fields also drawing increasingly on the female workforce. The bottom line at a macro level is that, more and more, women are driving the country's economic development. But with that phenomenon come questions, challenges, and concerns, on many diverse levels. Debates rage on psychological topics such as the effect the increasing number of women at work has on marriage and divorce, family and children, women's identities and stress levels and, overall, their physical and mental health. Psychologist Michele A. Paludi and her team of experts from across fields examine all aspects of women at work - the pros and cons, how it is changing American society, its women, their relationships, partners, and children

Women and mental disorders by Paula K Lundberg-Love( )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 988 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For too long, studies lumped women's mental health with that of men, notwithstanding profound differences. This work decisively addresses that oversight as a team of expert scholars and therapists spotlights common female mental disorders, explores the causes, and explains available therapies. Women in the United States are diagnosed with mental disorders at a far greater rate than men. Depression, anxiety, agoraphobia, and eating disorders appear to disproportionately strike women, as obviously do such female-only conditions as postpartum psychosis. Is it just that women are more likely to seek care and have their disorders recognized, or do the statistics reflect deeper disparities? In the last two decades, feminist therapists and scholars have called for new models of mental health that value women and femininity. To that end, the four-volume Women and Mental Disorders brings together recent research and theory to explore its subject from a feminist perspective. This set treats every aspect of women's mental health, from diagnoses to treatment. Underlying the entire work is an awareness of varying cultural definitions of mental health and the importance of understanding a woman's cultural background if treatment is to be respectful and successful. Special attention is also paid to women who have been victims of violence, whether in intimate relationships, the workplace, or at school, and to how these experiences impact mental and physical health, self-concept, interpersonal relationships, and career development. Approaches to treating women with eating disorders, agoraphobia, anxiety and depression, PTSD, and personality disorders are covered as well. Finally, the set provides resources to help readers address their own needs or those of friends and family."--Publisher

The psychology of love( )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The field of biology views "love" as a hard-wired mammalian drive, akin to thirst and hunger. In contrast, psychology views love from a social and cultural perspective where our drive to find love--and our responses to it--are highly dependent on societal norms. In The Psychology of Love, esteemed author and educator Michele A. Paludi examines love through all lenses, thereby providing readers a deeper understanding of the ways we can express caring, sensitivity, empathy, and respect toward one another. Each chapter in this comprehensive four-volume work includes a scholarly overview of empirical research and theories about the psychology of love. In addition, individuals' own definitions of love are included. Special attention is paid to accepted standards of love across a variety of cultures, the ways individuals express liking and love across the lifecycle, and patterns in dissolutions of friendships and romantic relationships, making note of gender and race differences
