GCOUN 6038 Feminist Theories and Therapies

This course chronicles feminist theoretical development and its application to psycho- therapy. A historical, multicultural, and trans- national lens will provide an examination of female development and feminist approaches to therapy. We will explore issues including life stages, family life, intellectual growth, sexuality, work, health, reproduction, creativity, community, and support building and activism. We will also examine societal issues that result in oppression and violence towards women. A feminist theoretical lens will be used to examine and rethink historical and contemporary psychological thought and practice.
