Hence this rich and ambitious edited book. Ranging from the philosophical to the clinical, it is a demanding read, providing a high-level, integrated introduction to feminist scholarship and the psychodynamic group psychotherapy literature. Most chapters refer, from various perspectives, to the differential developmental experiences and gender roles of men and women. Men’s identity is predicated on separation, power, and autonomy, and women’s on relation and nurturance. Women are not uniquely, but more likely, to have suffered, or be suffering, outright discrimination and abuse. Several authors discuss the pros and cons of mixed-sex and same-sex group composition, bringing to bear careful literature reviews demonstrating that female patients in mixed groups tend to follow cultural stereotypes, suppressing anger and deferring to male patients. All-women groups, on the other hand, arouse anxieties related to unresolved and powerful issues with mothers and insulate female patients from the opportunity to work out problems with men in vivo. Male and female therapists, likewise, elicit different transferences and manifest different countertransferences, to each of which they must be alert. In our multicultural society, cultural and assimilative factors must also be addressed. There is also a chapter on boundary issues: ethics, risk factors, and enforcement. Specific research questions for the future are identified.
