The influential group of scholars working out of the Stone Center of Wellesley College has drawn together their most important essays to make a major contribution to the literature of women's development. Their groundbreaking work on developmental theory is based on the prominence of relationships in women's experience of themselves, as opposed to the disconnection that traditional developmental theory asserts is necessary to achieve a sense of self. This volume will be of interest to clinical psychologists and social workers, psychotherapists, developmental psychologists, feminist scholars, and sociologists.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A welcome gift for anyone who needs a new, more convenient collection of already published working papers from the Stone Center or for those who are not familiar with this body of work. The center's relational psychology is indispensable, a mainstay for any mental health professional who works with women. Whether one agrees with these psychologists' psychoanalytic framework, one simply cannot do without their contributions to the psychology of women." --"Affilia, Journal of Women and Social Work"
"Some of the best of the new feminist psychological writing. Issues like anger and dependency get another definition from women's experiences."
--"Waterwheel"
"This book provides a major contribution towards understanding women's development." --"Psychotherapy in Private Practice"
"These are voices that are changing the way all women are heard and seen....Every woman who ever feels dissatisfied with life, angry, depressed, or misunderstood, and every man who cares about a woman who says she feels that way, and every psychotherapist needs this book." --"The Boston Globe "

"The work of the Stone Center represents the most significant epistemological shift in psychoanalytic thinking since Freud, transforming not only WHAT we think, but also HOW we think about female development. The authors inspire us to join with them to bring theory and clinical practice closer to the real world of female experience and to approach this challenge with courage, integrity, curiosity, and heart. In both content and spirit, this is a most revolutionary work." --Harriet Goldhor Lerner, PhD, Author of The Dance of Intimacy

"This impressive collection of the original work from the Stone Center presents the feminist inspired view of women's development from the self-in-relation theories. It is lucid, it is passionate, and it is ground-breaking." --Teresa Bernardez, MD, Faculty and Supervising Analyst of the Michigan Psychoanalytic Council

"Traditional psychology devalues and mystifies women. The work of the Stone Center revalues and illuminates." --Judith Lewis Herman, MD, Author of Trauma and Recovery

"How splendid to have, in book form, these varied and sensitive explorations of human psychology and development from a relational, women-centered perspective! This is the stuff of which world-transforming changes are made--if only we'll listen." --Paula J. Caplan, PhD, Author of The Myth of Women's Masochism and Don't Blame Mother

"Some of our customers waited for years to see the work of the Stone Center collected in a book. Others see Women's Growth in Connection for the first time, scan the table of contents, and feel as if this is the book they've been waiting for. Since publication, this work has generated praise and excitement, and promises to become, like Gilligan's In a Different Voice and Miller's Toward a New Psychology of Women, a 'classic' for readers interested in women's lives and experiences in the world." --Laura Zimmerman, New Words Bookstore, Cambridge, Massachusetts

"I have been using Women's Growth in Connection as one of the texts in my graduate course, Psychotherapy with Women. The students, who are graduate students in clinical, counseling psychology, and other mental health professions, have responded enthusiastically....These writings promote a critical reexamination of traditional theories of women's development and inspire therapists to envision new ways of being, for themselves, and for their women clients." --Edna I. Rawlings, University of Cincinnati

"The more I read, the more I had difficulty in putting the book down. In fact, I found myself reading sections over and over because of the richness, depth, and newness of the material presented....This collection of writings is an important and long overdue step in formulating new models of women's development." --Nancy R. Hooyman, University of Washington
