Radical Visionaries documents and honours those feminist therapy pioneers of the 1970s who moved the mental health establishment, and possibly the world, through radical action, to begin to consider women as fully human. It is remarkable today, even in these difficult times, to realize how far we have come, and to know it was these women who galvanized this move forward toward self-exploration and equality. As we move into the current era of feminism and social justice, it is imperative to pause to consider how these ‘second wave’ feminist pioneers gave us feminist therapy and all that followed from it. From the earliest stages of the movement, feminists used consciousness raising, which moved into the notion of the egalitarian therapy and ultimately led toward a cultural shift towards female empowerment and the groundswell of women into clinical psychology programs. These founding feminist therapists impacted structures including the criminal justice system, divorce proceedings, domestic violence services, education, medicine, and banking. This book highlight these women’s stories, told by the pioneers themselves, as they forged the trail for those of us who follow them. This book was originally published as a special issue of Women & Therapy.

Feminist therapy was created in the late 1960s, concurrent with the founding of The Association for Women in Psychology. Its early practitioners had diverse lifestyles, backgrounds, and often unconventional training, but all had a common and radical goal of providing an alternative therapy for women whose mental health was still defined in terms of male-pleasing behaviours and rigid social roles. Originally published in 1995, the contributors share the personal experiences and reflections that helped them revolutionize therapy for women, particularly poignant and instructive at the time, as psychotherapy evolved from client-centred and individualistic to bureaucratic and socially and politically conservative.

Counseling to End Violence against Women

Feminist theory has viewed violence against women as being a result of a male-dominated society; however, traditional counselling approaches to helping battered women have neither addressed this view nor encouraged social change. The author of this challenging volume seeks to bridge this gap by incorporating feminist theory with counselling practice. Whalen argues that a counsellor working with an abused woman should not aim merely to empower the client to change a situation that is intolerable for that particular woman: the counsellor should also aim to change the social conditions that foster abuse. The author's model focuses on women collectively seizing power and ending violence against all women.

Explore the obstacles and challenges involved in bringing feminist values and techniques into mainstream therapy Feminist therapy has been challenging mainstream therapy thinking and practice for the past thirty years. The Foundation and Future of Feminist Therapy is the first book to provide a summary and compilation of that history. It describes the work of the major contributors, early and recent, and gives a terrific overview of the rich and radical development of feminist therapy from a variety of perspectives. The Foundation and Future of Feminist Therapy honors the work of women such as Laura Brown, Iris Fodor, Miriam Greenspan, Hannah Lerman, and Lenore Walker, who developed, and who continue to develop, feminist therapy theory and practice. This book breaks new ground by envisioning a feminist-informed future in the areas of therapy practice, the education of therapists, and community. It also provides an unflinching look at the challenges and threats to developing that future and offers suggestions for action. The Foundation and Future of Feminist Therapy includes the work of past and present contributors to feminist theory on topics such as: the complex intertwining of gender and other oppressions the impact of race and ethnicity the effects of sexual orientation, age, class, disability, and refugee and immigrant status discussions about violence against women feminist theory from a wide range of perspectives, from relational-cultural to multicultural theory perspectives on trauma the discussions at a conference that imagined a future informed by feminist principles and much more! For those interested in feminist therapy theory, The Foundation and Future of Feminist Therapy is an excellent starting point, and many references are provided for readers who want to pursue specific topics further. This book will interest practicing therapists at all levels, including psychologists, counselors, and social workers. It is also appropriate as a textbook for women’s studies, psychology of women, counseling, psychology, and social work classes.
