Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1998, Vol 43(11), 765-766. Knowing that effective therapeutic approaches are grounded in well-developed theoretical assumptions, values, and principles, Enns (see record 1997-30240-000) presents a careful analysis of the feminist theoretical roots that have given birth to the variety of feminist therapies being practiced today. She strives to help readers “examine how their philosophical perspectives influence practice” (p. 289) as well as to facilitate readers' understandings of the similarities and differences among feminist therapies. Enns's major, unique contribution to the field of feminist psychological practice is its identification and tracing of the theoretical, grassroots underpinnings of feminist therapies.
