IG 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 psyche and human behavior. The idea of the opposite of male and female principles 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 about productive strategies and practices of behavior in order to overcome traditional gender stereotypes and resolve the conflicts and problems arising on their basis.
This handbook is a convenient source for practitioners, researchers and students to access in order to obtain comprehensive information on the techniques and tools of the psychologist's corrective work in the field of gender therapy.
