This groundbreaking 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 re-created in keeping with feminist principles and practices.

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.

Reviews & Awards

This is an important book. It crosses a number of specialty areas in psychology…This book grasps the essence of feminist thinking as it continues to evolve toward the end of this century…The authors challenge patriarchal topics and focus on women's topics which, they feel, have been ignored until recently…Worell and Johnson provide helpful guidelines to feminist practice…It would be too bad if we fail to include this book in academic programs.
