About the Course:

Well-grounded in research, this book presents psychology as it has been transformed and is being transformed by the inclusion of women in the discipline. It discusses the changes that a feminist vision of psychology has made in everything from the methods used to the topics being studied. It focuses on important issues such as violence against women, health psychology, work-family balance, development across the life-course, and sexist discrimination. You will find this to be a reader friendly book weaving a cohesive story that delivers its main points in a clear and straightforward manner.

This course is based on the book, Women and Gender: Transforming Psychology created by Yoder, Janice, Ph.D.

Publication Date:

1998 1st Edition
