Women's Growth in Connection: Writings from the Stone Center Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The influential group of scholars working out of the Stone Center of Wellesley College has drawn together their most important essays to make a major contribution to the literature of women's development. Their groundbreaking work on developmental theory is based on the prominence of relationships in women's experience of themselves, as opposed to the disconnection that traditional developmental theory asserts is necessary to achieve a sense of self. This volume will be of interest to clinical psychologists and social workers, psychotherapists, developmental psychologists, feminist scholars, and sociologists.

Synopsis:

Overly emotional, hysterical, dependent, frivolous, fickle... Why have women been so consistently defined as deficient in maturity, self-mastery, and independence according to the models of human development inspired by male culture? The authors of WOMEN'S GROWTH IN CONNECTION, a sampling of the influential working papers from the Stone Center, Wellesley College, have sought to answer this question by studying developmental theory and reformulating it to reflect women's experience more accurately. These papers, about women's ways of being in the world, frame an innovative relational perspective on women's psychological development. The authors--clinicians, clinical supervisors, and teachers--have been searching for therapeutic models that take into account women's meaning systems, values, and organization of experiences, all of which often revolves around relationships rather than the self. By offering a new perspective on women's development, WOMEN'S GROWTH IN CONNECTION stands at the forefront of the ongoing feminist movement to examine and reshape psychological theory and practice. The authors offer this volume as an invitation to the reader to join in the building of new models of women's development.

Synopsis:

Elucidating the Stone Center's influential work on women's development, this volume is both a critique of traditional psychodynamic training and a major theoretical contribution to the study of development.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 291-305) and index.
