I.G. Malkin-Pykh. Gender therapy. Handbook of the Practical Psychologist, 2003
The division of people into men and women determines the perception of differences characteristic of the psyche and human behavior. The idea of the opposition of male and female principles is found in the traditions of all civilizations. Today, many psychologists question such a strict division of humanity into two groups, believing that it leads to the emergence of many psychological problems. Gender therapy aims to educate men and women on productive strategies and practices for overcoming traditional gender stereotypes and resolving conflicts and problems arising from them.
This handbook is a convenient source that practitioners, researchers and students can turn to in order to receive comprehensive information on the techniques and tools of the psychologist’s correctional work in the field of gender therapy.
