"Manijeh Daneshpour, a distinguished scholar-clinician, brilliantly combines sociological and global perspectives to illuminate the ways gender, power, and social justice intersect in relational dynamics and describes the healing potential of psychotherapy. She shows how these powerful insights about our gendered experience can guide interventions to address inequities in relationships and address the impact of socio-political issues in our therapeutic practice. Highly recommended for all mental health practitioners!" - Froma Walsh, PhD, Co-Founder & Co-Director, Chicago Center for Family Health; Firestone Professor Emerita, University of Chicago; Author, Strengthening Family Resilience: Third Edition

"Gender, Power, and Global Social Justice: The Healing Power of Psychotherapy takes the study of gender to a new level! Dr. Manijeh Daneshpour invites us into the complexities of gender related to multiple aspects of societies, including work, violence, family, religion, colonization, war, and politics – all within a global context. This expansive and innovative approach to gender is a must read for those seeking a fuller understanding of the politics of global social justice and the healing power of psychotherapy." - Teresa McDowell, EdD, Professor Emerita, and Carmen Knudson-Martin, PhD, Professor, Lewis & Clark College; authors of Socioculturally Attuned Family Therapy: Guidelines for Equitable Theory and Practice

"We often think that global social justice and psychotherapy are macro and micro levels of analysis. But Manijeh Daneshpour's bracing book makes the convincing case that both gender and power work at both levels, and by knitting them together, we can heal both ourselves and our worlds." - Michael Kimmel, SUNY Distinguished Professor of Sociology and Gender Studies; Emeritus, Stony Brook University and author of Gendered Society
