NARVAZ, Martha Giudice  and  KOLLER, Sílvia Helena. Feminism and therapy: feminist family therapy - for an engaged psychology. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2007, vol.19, n.2, pp. 117-131. ISSN 0103-5665.

This paper intends to point out feminist family therapy as a critical approach in the family therapy field. Initially, we describe feminism like a political, theoretical and epistemological field, as well as the incorporation of feminist assumptions by psychotherapy. We also describe the emergence of feminist family therapy and the major feminist criticism against traditional systemic family therapy. At the end, we highlight feminist family therapy like an engaged practice that reviews traditional and hegemonic knowledge about gender roles and places in the general social scheme.

Keywords : feminist therapy; feminism; family therapy; gender; psychotherapy.
