Bridging Separate Gender Worlds: Why Men and Women Clash and How Therapists Can Bring Them Together
Bridging Separate Gender Worlds provides therapists with gender-sensitive techniques and interventions to help clients understand the challenges of today's confused gender expectations. The authors offer three models of interventions for working with different types of clients. They also detail various methods that can be used within any type of therapy: the gender inquiry, the gender role journey, and the coevolution process. These practical solutions and techniques can help therapists transform angry confrontations and helpless confusion into nonblaming empathy and change.
Backed up by research and richly illustrated with case examples, this volume eschews the angry polemics of gender debates and the easy solutions of popular trade books. Instead, the authors provide therapists and students with an excellent resource for exploring gender issues within the therapeutic relationship.
