Women's Growth in Connection offers a sampling of the influential ideas emanating from The Stone Center, Wellesley College, about women's meaning systems, values, and organization of experiences. These chapters, about women's ways of being in the world, frame an innovative relational perspective on women's psychological development. The authors--clinicians, clinical supervisors, and teachers--have been searching for therapeutic models that more clearly reflect women's lives. They are troubled by models of 'human' development inspired by male culture, models that define health and maturity in terms of separation and consistently define women as deficient.
