This insightful sourcebook covers a range of pastoral care topics including the role of women in pastoral theology and pastoral care, care of African American women and women entering ministry, as well as issues from a range of women's experiences such as anger, aggression, lesbian identities, loss of mothers, eating disorders, hysterectomy, mastectomy, rape, and older women's issues. Transformative essays on women's spiritual care, community, self-sacrifice, and self-denial conclude this collaborative work.
Divided into three parts, Through the Eyes of Women underscores how gender and public policy issues need to be emphasized, explores several specific issues of women--especially issues of the body--in a way that is counter to the prevailing and the unhelpful dichotomy between mind and body, and concentrates on women as the care providers--the training of seminarians, therapists, and educators.
