CHOICE Review

This is the third in a series of books emanating from Wellesley College's Stone Center and edited by Jordan. The first two--Women's Growth in Connection (CH, Nov'91, 28-1800) and Women's Growth in Diversity (1997)--sought to delineate a new model of women in psychotherapy, a model challenging assumptions of traditional models and methods of psychotherapy, which focuses on the hypertrophied, isolated, individual, masculine self. The present volume continues the development of the notion of connection as the central organizing principle of human life and psychotherapy. Woven into the elaboration of what connection means and implies in the psychotherapeutic relationship is an exploration of the roles of culture and politics in creating and constraining human relationships and the importance of recognizing how culture and politics are manifested in the therapist's office. The first part of the book examines the nature of connection from a variety of perspectives; the second part consists of series of applications of the connection model to different kinds of relationships and therapeutic settings. The editors and contributors are primarily therapists associated with the Stone Center, all with extensive experience in recasting the foundations of psychotherapy and, indeed, all human relationships. ^BSumming Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. R. R. Cornelius Vassar College
