Feminism, Community and Communication by Betty Mackune-Karrer

Book Description

...from the minds of therapists on the cutting edge! This informative, innovative collection brings together the work of a group of "scholar-therapists," all women, who have met regularly for ten years to discuss family therapy, gender, and postmodern ideas. The major themes--feminism, community, and communication--are taken in new directions. Feminism, Community, and Communication rethinks therapy, research, teaching, and community work with a renewed emphasis on collaboration, intersubjectivity, and the process of communication as a world-making and identity-making activity. The issues of gender, culture, religion, race, and class figure prominently in this book. In Feminism, Community, and Communication you'll find descriptions of: * communal perspectives for therapists that stress listening and understanding over interpreting and knowing * the power of love and spirituality in relation to organizational consultation to an agency beset by racial division * research on anorexia and what it means * a mentoring project for rural girls * the Bar/Bat Mitzva as therapy * an ethnographic study of Lebanese women Feminism, Community, and Communication takes an exciting, fresh look at these three intertwined concepts, representing a way of thinking and doing therapy, research, community work, and training that highlights the ethical dimension of each. The book takes the position that human beings are meaning-makers in a common world, and not simply objects to be scrutinized or assessed by "experts."
