Abstract and Keywords

In this chapter, the authors discuss the development of feminist psychological practice and identify similarities between feminist approaches and counseling psychology, including multicultural and social justice perspectives. Empowerment Feminist Therapy (Worell & Remer, 1992, 2003) is highlighted as a model of feminist practice that applies the Guidelines for Psychological Practice with Girls and Women (APA, 2007) and incorporates social justice principles. The authors explain methods for using feminist assessment and conceptualization as collaborative and empowering interventions. They describe specific techniques for cultural analysis, exploration of privilege and oppression, analysis of identity development, and exploration of intersecting identities. The authors explore feminist perspectives on several ethical issues and stress the importance of using the Guidelines as a model of effective practice. Future directions for feminist theory and practice are provided.
