The book provides conceptual tools for thinking about gender, social categorization, human meaning-making, and culture. Uniting the perspective of narrative psychology with feminist and narrative criminology, we analyzed interviews with 58 formerly incarcerated women.

Feminist Reconstructions in Psychology introduces a distinctive new mode in doing psychology. This psychology is based on an increasingly popular range of ideas called social constructionism. Within the book, new forms of theory and methods of inquiry relating social constructionism to feminist topics are introduced. Each chapter highlights different topics of special concern within gender studies, especially the psychology of women. The book draws from the central tenets of postmodern inquiry, as played out in the positive framework of social constructionism.

Feminists and Psychological Practice gives voice to the developing feminist critique of the position of women within academic and professional psychology. Drawing on the experiences and perspectives of students, teachers, researchers and practitioners, it explores how psychology functions to maintain power structures and practices which often exclude and oppress women.

The authors address the issues that face feminists who attempt to counter these structures and practices, approaching the topic from a wide range of viewpoints reflecting different class, cultural and political positions. They question feminist as well as mainstream psychological practice. They confront the central dilemma over whether to work within or outside `the system'. The implications of the discussion resonate far beyond the specific context of the profession of psychology.

The book comes at a critical time, when the changing landscape of health and education puts psychology under increasing pressure to prove its efficacy and when women academics and practitioners face the prospect of working within patriarchal management increasingly governed by market forces.

Feminists and Psychological Practice will prove invaluable to women in educational, clinical and academic psychology worldwide; it provides important material for courses in the psychology of women, the history and sociology of psychology, women's studies and gender studies.
