Here's an update from my corner of the universe:
The Special Issue on Women and Group Therapy in the International Journal of Group Psychotherapy is out. Co-edited by Jill Paquin, PhD, and Nikki Coleman, PhD, the Issue features work from an incredible group of mostly women-identified authors. "I am assigning readings from this Issue in my group therapy class" notes Dennis Kivlighan, Jr., PhD, as this special issue fills an important gap in the literature on group therapy. Several of the articles (including the Introduction) have also been made available free of charge by the publisher for a limited time.
Articles include: A Brief History of Group Therapy as a Field and the Representation of Women in Its Development, by Jill Paquin, Ph.D., Courtney Abegunde, M.A., Alexis Hahn, Psy.D., and Ruth Fassinger, Ph.D.; “I’m Like a Chameleon”: An Exploration of the Experiences of Mexican American Women Who Are Group Psychotherapists-in-Training, by Elizabeth Terrazas-Carrillo, Ph.D., Ediza Garcia, Psy.D., and Amanda Rodriguez, B.A.; WISE: A Support Group for Graduate and Postgraduate Women in STEM, by Jessica Gold, M.D., Lena Jia, B.A., Jessica Bentzley, M.D., Kacy Bonnet, M.D., Amanda Franciscus, M.D., Meenakshi Denduluri, M.D., and Laraine Zappert, Ph.D.; Relationship Variables in Group Psychotherapy for Female Sexual Trauma Survivors, by Sarah De La Rosa, Ph.D., and Maria Riva, Ph.D.; and Effectiveness of Group Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT-G) Among Women with Major Depression in Turkey, by Oral Meltem, MSW, LCSW, Ph.D., and Tarik Tuncay, MSW, Ph.D.
