Feminist therapy by Laura S Brown( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2018 in English and held by 774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Proclaiming that feminist therapy is not only for women, clinical/ forensic psychologist Brown (in private practice, Seattle) describes a therapeutic approach that seeks to empower clients while still influencing mainstream practice. She treats its emphasis on equalitarian relationships; theoretical interpretations of power in the biological, intrapsychic, and interpersonal realms; the therapeutic process in this multicultural and global framework; its evidence base; and future developments. The book includes a glossary of key terms and suggested readings
Personality and psychopathology : feminist reappraisals( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Under the scrutiny of feminist theory, traditional theories of personality and psychopathology are shown to be inadequate primarily because the theories reflect the biased cultural norms in which they were developed. Some limitations include their constricted views of human nature, their narrowly constructed definitions of mental health and mental disorder, and their lack of accounting for the many forces that affect human development and functioning. Synthesizing over 20 years of feminist thinking, this volume presents original critiques of mainstream psychological theories and lays the groundwork for the development of a context-based, feminist psychological theory." "The first and only volume to present a specifically feminist perspective on the theoretical and conceptual foundations of treatment, Personality and Psychopathology is an essential text for upper-level courses in personality, psychopathology, and the psychology of women. Providing invaluable insights, it is necessary reading for mainstream and feminist therapists of all disciplines."--Jacket
Cultural competence in trauma therapy : beyond the flashback by Laura S Brown( Book )

20 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on her extensive clinical experience and the latest research, Laura Brown shows therapists how to become more sensitive to individual identity when working with clients who have suffered trauma. The author explains how culturally sensitive therapists draw upon multiple strategies for treating patients and are aware of both dominant group privilege and their own identity and culture. The book has a practical focus and contains a variety of case studies illustrating how theoretical constructs can inform assessment and treatment. Given the ubiquity of trauma in its various forms, all therapists, from trainees to seasoned professionals, will find this volume educational and thought provoking."--BOOK JACKET
Rethinking mental health and disorder : feminist perspectives( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents cutting-edge work at the interface of feminist theory and mental health. Building on the success of their acclaimed "Personality and Psychopathology," which called into question traditional models of health and disorder, Mary Ballou and Laura S. Brown have invited a stellar array of contributors to continue the vital process of feminist theory building and critique. The book outlines compelling theoretical approaches including postmodern, constructivist, relational, cultural, and feminist ecological perspectives that go beyond simply inserting analyses of gender, culture, and other contextual factors into existing paradigms. Also examined are specific areas of distress and disorder about which new feminist understandings have been developed in the past decade. Shedding new light on such conditions as depression, PTSD, psychosis, somatoform disorders, and premenstrual syndrome, chapters address critical questions about how disorders are diagnosed, who gets labeled as "sick," and how treatment is conceptualized and delivered
Subversive dialogues : theory in feminist therapy by Laura S Brown( Book )

7 editions published between 1994 and 2004 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Building on the revolutionary work of feminist scholars who have described how women employ strategies of knowing the world in a manner distinct from men, Laura S. Brown, noted for her pioneering work in the field of ethics and boundaries, shows how these insights should reshape the very nature of the therapeutic encounter. Therapy must be understood as an opportunity to help clients see the relationships between their behavior and the patriarchal society in which we are all embedded
Diversity and complexity in feminist therapy by Maria P. P Root( Book )

14 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diversity and Complexity in Feminist Therapy is an unprecedented new book that focuses on incorporating, appreciating, and building on the differences among women. Multicultural in content and authorship, this intellectually and emotionally stimulating volume breaks new ground in the development of theory in feminist therapy. Chapters run the gamut from highly theoretical works that challenge us to examine the validity of current male, Western psychological theories, to the very personal story of one woman's struggle with oppression and her respect for the differences between her experiences o
Supervision essentials for the feminist psychotherapy model of supervision by Laura S Brown( )

5 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While feminist therapy has grown in stature and recognition in the last few decades, comparatively little has been written about supervision and consultation from a feminist standpoint. In this book, the latest in the Clinical Supervision Essentials series from APA Books, Dr. Laura Brown remedies this deficit by presenting a theoretically-grounded, yet practical approach to supervision based on the principles of feminist psychotherapy. This volume offers a framework for translating feminist therapy constructs - including recognizing the impact of systemic hierarchies, and thinking critically about dominant cultural norms in the practice of psychotherapy - into the supervision setting. Incorporating practices derived from multicultural, queer, and other critical psychologies, feminist therapy supervision challenges trainees and supervisors alike to engage with difficult questions about the presence of bias, and ways in which power distributes itself in the context of education, psychotherapy, and supervision itself. Includes a synthesis of the literature on feminist therapy and theory, as well as case examples and practical advice for resolving common supervision problems. The book also offers close analyses of the author's consulting session documented in the DVD Feminist Therapy Supervision, also available from APA books"--The publisher

Legal issues in trauma therapy( Visual )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The false memory attack is one that has caused a great deal of unhappiness and a great deal of difficulty. It has also helped raise the standard of care. There is no doubt that the law has intruded into the practice of therapy, and there is no doubt that it will continue to do so." Alan Scheflin, JD. The 1990s saw a vigorous and well-publicized backlash, exemplified by the false memory movement, against sexual abuse survivors and the therapists who treat them. At the same time, public discussion of these issues focused attention on how abuse, and therapy for abuse, affects families, communities, and society. This video series describes the reasons for the false memory attack and strategies for prevention. Five therapists who have met with harassment discuss their experiences
Overcoming fear of fat by Esther D Rothblum( Book )

6 editions published between 1989 and 2019 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is an enlightening new volume that presents an integration of anti-fat-oppressive attitudes into the work of feminist therapy. Overcoming Fear of Fat is unique among professional work in the area of women and fat in that it does not approach size as the problem; rather it approaches prejudice against fat as the problem. Although for nearly a decade, fat activists have been raising the issues that are confronted in this book, therapists, including feminist therapists, have been colluding with their clients in pathologizing fat, celebrating weight loss, and failing to adequately challenge cultural stereotypes of attractiveness for women, instead of empowering clients and encouraging them to take on expert authority about their own experiences. The contributors, including therapists and fat activists, aim to disconnect the issues of food intake and eating disorders from those of weight. They share personal and professional experiences of challenging fat oppression, offer strategies for therapists to rid themselves and their clients of fat oppressive attitudes, and most importantly, they confront long-held cultural myths that fat is unhealthy, and that fat women are physically unfit and are in hiding from their sexuality or personal power. A practical and informative resource for therapists, especially those who work with fat women or who themselves struggle with issues of feeling critical of their own body size, Overcoming Fear of Fat will also be a valuable guide for fat women who wish to feel supported in their struggle for self-worth and respect
Feminist therapy supervision( Visual )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Feminist Therapy Supervision, guest expert supervisor Dr. Laura S. Brown demonstrates and discusses this approach to supervision. The goal of feminist supervision is to empower the supervisee by using analysis of gender and analysis of power to achieve the goal of an egalitarian supervisory relationship, while simultaneously acknowledging and embracing feminist political analysis and scholarship on the psychology of women and gender. The feminist supervisor integrates a multiculturally informed approach to understanding the client's distress as well as the supervisee's challenges and capacities. In this DVD, Dr. Brown and her supervisee engage in a supervisory session that shows how the identities for all parties in the supervision triad -- client, supervisor, and supervisee -- inform what occurs in both the supervision and the psychotherapy. Host Dr. Arpana G. Inman interviews Brown and her supervisee about their work together, exploring the constructs of this model as they examine the session in detail."--

Feminist therapy over time( Visual )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Feminist Therapy Over Time, Laura S. Brown demonstrates how this qualitative and phenomenological approach, which takes into account the meanings of gender and power in the client's social realities, empowers the client. The goals of the therapy are determined collaboratively within the session, creating not just tailor-made therapy, but an egalitarian relationship conducive to client empowerment. This relationship, in which each person brings equally valued expertise to the process, is essential to the therapeutic goal of helping clients to feel more personal power in their lives. Over the course of six sessions, Dr. Brown works with a 43-year-old woman who has three children and a history of substance abuse, poor relationship choices, and feeling unloved, unappreciated, and devalued. Dr. Brown talks with the client about developing self-empathy, learning to quiet the critical voice she hears, and recognizing that caring for herself is empowering. The client is invited to see that she has many of the inner resources that she needs for her recovery process, with a goal of reducing her reliance on the authority of others, including the therapist
