I. G. Malkin-Pykh. Gender Therapy. Handbook of practical psychologist, 2003
The division of people into men and women determines the perception of differences characteristic of the human psyche and behavior. The idea of the opposite of masculine and feminine is found in the traditions of all civilizations. Today, many psychologists question such a rigid 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 in productive behavioral strategies and practices for overcoming traditional gender stereotypes and resolving conflicts and problems arising from them.
This handbook is a convenient source to which practitioners, researchers and students can turn to in order to obtain comprehensive information on the techniques and tools of the psychologist’s remedial work in the field of gender therapy.
