Healing Voices: Feminist Approaches to Therapy with Women
In recent years, female therapists and their clients have addressed the discrepancy between psychological theory and women's experiences. New therapies developed out of the collective efforts of women and their therapists to express their unique identity. This book presents the framework of innovative therapy, but more important, describes healing techniques - ego-state therapy, Jungian dreamwork, native healing for alcohol and child sexual abuse, techniques of metaphors, drawing, story telling and imagery, hypnosis in healing childhood trauma, overcoming guilt in incest and more. At the end of each chapter we hear the client's voice. As each woman is expert in her own experience, it's she who has the last word.
