Feminism, moral consultation, and training

William J. Doherty

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


If feminism were just another competing clinical model, its impact could have been absorbed and tamed by the field of psychotherapy. If its claims were limited to the treatment of women in therapy, it could have been relegated more easily to a way to treat a portion of the population. The story of how feminist therapists introduced radical notions of social and political justice into the world of therapy has been often told. Less appreciated are the broader implications of feminism for the once-standard notion that therapists must separate moral sensibilities from their work.
