This paper discusses feminist therapists. It discusses the ways in which gender has shaped the lives and experiences of the people these therapists treat in order to understand how the gender role has expected them to develop and deal with stress, race, class, sexual orientation, age cohorts and abilities. It then discusses post-modern approaches which are non-traditional therapies that do not rely on diagnostic labels and therapies that disdain the medical model.
