"Women and Healing" is a wonderful resource in a highly readable
format that provides a feminist critique of the many
mind-body-spirit therapies, including psychotherapy, family therapy
and complementary therapies, that are widely practiced. The
benefits of each of these therapeutic methods is evaluated in terms
of the level of healing and growth experienced physically,
mentally, emotionally, and spiritually by women using these
"Women and Healing" explores the difficulties that women may
experience during their life cycles and in times of crisis.
Therapies that may be used to alleviate pain during menstruation,
pregnancy and childbirth, the menopause and ageing are also
investigated. Problems that may beset a woman, such as anorexia or
bulimia, unwanted pregnancy, miscarriage or stillbirth, sexual
difficulties, addiction or the onset of illness are also discussed.
The losses and trauma that women may suffer, such as separation,
bereavement, rape or abuse are also explored. Healing from poor
self-esteem and body image due to patriarchal objectification of
the female form is also examined. The road to recovery through
self-awareness and growth is discussed in light of individual
therapies, spiritual practices, organisations and self-help groups
that offer support and healing.
