Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A real contribution to understanding the complex issues that women face today. I found the book fascinating.

--Donna Shalala, President, University of Miami, and Former United States Secretary of Health and Human Services Donna Shalala,

Until recently, women's specific issues were largely ignored. For too many years research, counseling interventions, and public policy have neglected women's voices and stories. With persistence and vigilance we now see major changes in research and practice that focus on women and their issues. Psychology played a major role in these advances and The Handbook of Counseling Women is part of the giant step forward that psychology is making in promoting counseling of women that encompasses an understanding of the gender, social/economic, and cultural impact of being a woman today.

--Norine G. Johnson, President, American Psychological Association, 2001

Part Two is devoted to assessment, diagnosis, and intervention. Part Three covers supervision, research, and ethics.

Sixty-five American scholars, educators, researchers, and practitioners contribute 33 chapters to this text for mental health practitioners and students of counseling, psychology, and other helping professions.
