… if you’re interested in any form of psychotherapy or counselling as well as in feminism, then this is the book for you.

Diana Currie, Newsletter of Women with Disabilities Australia
I recently bought Beyond Psychoppression, Betty McLellan’s book – a feminist critique of mainstream psychotherapy. Hearing that a friend was having “great gobs of depression”, I photocopied a chapter for her to read. She loved it and declared, “I definitely feel better from having read it – thank you.” Now she is waiting impatiently for me to finish reading the book so I can pass it on to her.
