TRUSTING OURSELVES: The Sourcebook on Psychology for Women

A knowledgeable and thorough guide to the psychology of women, for women. Johnson (a psychiatrist) and Ferguson (a physician and medical editor of The Essential Whole Earth Catalogue) offer a sharp--if not particularly original--history of the genesis and development of sexual biases in psychological practice, then proceed to the heart of their 456-page book: detailed examinations of women's relationships with parents and partners. Also included: self-analysis quizzes, recommended actions, suggested further readings, a course in taking one's own biopsychosocial history, and advice on finding professional help, if necessary.
