Updating the Core Psychology Course

Integrating Gender into the Curriculum


Toby R. Silverman

Recent scholarship on gender issues has sparked a host of integration projects in colleges and universities. In redesigning curricula, it is necessary to point out new interpretations of established theories and include the new findings on gender related issues. Faculty in psychology and women's studies are presented with updates in key areas of a core psychology course, including psychoanalysis, testing, mental illness, therapy, and special themes in women's lives, to aid their lecture preparations.
Contents: This book, written for faculty in psychology and women's studies, summarizes recent research on gender issues in key areas of a core psychology course.
