Feminist Groupwork

by Sandra E Butler & Claire Wintram
£21.99   paperback  Sage Publications (1991)

Feminist Groupwork by Sandra E Butler & Claire Wintram Feminist Groupwork explores the purposes, practice and effectiveness of groupwork with women, drawing upon the authors' own involvement in setting up and running community-based women's groups.
 
The book offers clear accounts of the structured content of group sessions and the definitions and measurements of change developed by participants. It makes a convincing case for adopting a feminist approach with women who are isolated in their own communities and who bear the brunt of socio-political disadvantage. Central to the book is the focus on women's understandings of themselves and their experiences, and how groupwork can lead to potentially liberating interpretations with profound consequences for participants' lives. Women are encouraged to recognize their resilience, survival skills and strengths.
 
Feminist Groupwork was awarded a 1992 Distinguished Publication Award by the Association for Women in Psychology, USA.
