MEDIA REVIEWS
Kudos to Drs. Comas-Diaz and Weiner for having conceptualized this project and brought together 11 articulate, thoughtful psychotherapists. Their highly personalized stories of how they evolved into healers are both instructional and inspirational to women therapists at any age or level of experience. Women Psychotherapists:Journeys in Healing belongs in every woman therapist's library. -- Dorothy W. Cantor, PsyD, Former President: American Psychological Association
The editors have collected rich, compelling stories of the life journeys of eleven wisewomen who are noted psychotherapists and healers. Each wisewoman shares poignant and personal accounts of the influences in her life that have led to the path she has followed and the joy she feels in her current career. Each brings us a unique understanding of diverse and significant aspects of the process of psychotherapy and its relationship to healing. A treasure for the thoughtful therapist -- Bonnie R. Strickland, PhD, Past-President, American Psychological Association
This treasure provides unique and invaluable views into the life experiences of a very diverse group of experienced women psychotherapists. The stunningly good anthology provides insights about how these amazing women's life circumstances contributed to their development. Mental health professionals and consumers, both women and men alike, will identify and resonate with the encouraging, uplifting, and inspiring stories of struggles and triumphs. -- Melba Vasquez, PhD, American Psychological Association President, 2011
This book has beautifully met the purpose of the editors and perhaps exceeds it.... Comas-Diaz and Weiner have contributed a rich and layered rendering of women psychotherapists' lives. Their book will be inspiring and useful for both beginning and advanced practitioners. This contribution may spark a desire for more texts about advanced development for psychotherapists and connections between spirituality and practice. * PsycCRITIQUES *
