The Seeing Gender series is a collection of lectures designed to train mental health and social service professionals in the art of seeing-and intervening-in gender-based psychological issues with women. In each of the topical seminars, feminist psychotherapist Dr. Susan Hall integrates research-based evidence from a range of fields, including anthropology, body-image research, social psychology, economics, theology, neuropsychiatry, and feminist activism, in order to lay out a critical framework for seeing gender. Her interdisciplinary methods effectively reveal the key historical and cultural factors, too often hidden from sight, which have underpinned and propelled much of women´s symptomologies. Dr. Hall´s approach not only helps practitioners gain new skills to see gender within a complex web of history and culture, but also illuminates the interventions and treatment strategies needed to help women heal and live fuller, more authentic lives.
The Seeing Gender lecture series will help you engage a feminist cultural critique, and then extend beyond to offer treatment categories, methods for empowerment, and strategies for individual and social change. The ultimate goal of the series is to prepare clinicians to inoculate girls and women from restrictive gender assumptions so that patients can make staggeringly rich lives of their own choosing.
The lectures are accompanied by a variety of aids including images, quotes, statistics, key questions, work sheets, case studies, and recommended reading. The seminars may be purchased for personal enrichment or for Continuing Education.
