Feminist Psychotherapies: Theory, Research, and Practice
Department or Administrative Unit
The introduction and development of feminist psychotherapy was one of the many accomplishments of second wave feminism in the West and very much a product of the social and cultural context of the late 1960s and early 1970s, during which time feminism enjoyed an unparalleled resurgence in Western societies. Within a brief time, it also appeared in various cultural incarnations in many non-Western and developing countries as local and indigenous groups began to realize that women’s rights are human rights.
