Practice : An Alternative to Counseling and Psychotherapy by
Shlomit C. Schuster
Although philosophy has become a purely academic discipline over the
last few centuries, it once played an important role in the politics of
many Western nations. Now, the end of the 20th century, philosophy
seems to be returning to its original, practical purposes, thanks to the
new practice of philosophical counseling, which is now emerging as an
alternative to psychoanalysis and other clinical approaches. This volume
describes the main theoretical aspects of this practice based on an
open-ended dialogue between a philosophical practitioner and a client or
a group, and places it in a historical context, while contrasting it
with various forms of psychological counseling. To illustrate how philosophy
can be beneficial, the author, a practicing philosophical counselor, also
presents several case studies from her own practice.

The Women's Liberation Research Network is a group of
students, teachers, activists, librarians, and archivists who have an interest in some
aspect of the U.S. Women's Liberation Movement. The idea of a network came out of a panel
at the 1996 Berkshires conference where it became clear that there was widespread interest
in this era as a research topic, yet many of us did not know who was doing what.
The purpose of this network is to provide simple connective tissue among those
researching, writing, teaching, and collecting in the hopes that we can provide a a
better, more accurate understanding of this period in history.
This site has pages on Secular and Religious Women writers.

The Women's Studies Program is an interdisciplinary program providing courses and a minor and a
concentration in Women's Studies. It is open to students in all degree programs.
Identifying gender as fundamental to the way that men and women understand themselves, Women's
Studies focuses on the position of women and, thus, causes us to rethink history and culture. The academic discipline of
Women Studies continues to transform scholarship and basic assumptions in all areas of the humanities, social sciences, and the professions.
Courses in Women's Studies address the history and achievement of
women and analyze the implications of gender roles in the past and present. Courses consider such topics and the social and cultural
consequences for both women and men of gender divisions and sex-role restrictions. They ask such questions as: To what extent are gender
divisions in society biologically determined, and to what extent are they social constructions? How has the subordination of women been a factor
in the formation of legal and economic systems around the world? In what ways can such disciplines as Philosophy, Literature, and Religious
Studies change once women become active participants and creators? What is the significance of gender in the formation of systems of thought
and the symbols we use?
