The women’s movement of the 1960’s and 1970’s sparked an increased interest in gender research, which continues to the present time. Over the years, significant advances have been made, with improvements in methods, terminology, and breadth of content. The two-volume Handbook of Gender Research in Psychology brings these achievements into bold perspective by presenting both the current state of the field and an ambitious agenda for the future. The Handbook’s major goals—better communication between researchers, identification and addressing of knowledge gaps, elimination of bias in research and treatment—are exemplified in both volumes.
Areas covered in Volume 1, Gender Research in Basic and Experimental Psychology, include: The history of the psychology of women, men/masculinity, and sexual minorities, the brain and behavior: physiology and beyond, learning, education, and cognition, including academic, spatial, and creative abilities. Written, oral, and nonverbal communication, emotion, motivation, and sexuality, gender roles and identity across the lifespan.
Volume 2, Gender Research in Social and Applied Psychology, covers these critical areas: Abnormal and clinical psychology, including gendered aspects of depression, body image, and eating disorders, psychotherapy with women, men, couples, and families, social psychology, including intimate relationships, group behavior, and gender prejudice, work, the workplace, and leadership, health care and health behavior, special topics, from the media to the military.
Blending the challenging with the accessible, Handbook of Gender Research in Psychology is a reference of the first order for researchers, a practice-enhancing resource for clinical psychologists and other therapists, and an exceedingly useful text for the professor or graduate student.
