Review by:
Richard Reichbart, Ph.D.

Arising from the area of gender and sexuality, a revolution is taking place within psychoanalysis, one that has been developing for years and has recently burst forth more fully. It has spawned a landmark 1996 supplementary volume of the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association; two new journals on gender and sexuality; and innumerable books, presentations, and articles. Generally, established institutes seem unaware of this revolution in a formal sense and have yet to change their required curriculums to accommodate it. Many male psychoanalysis, to judge by their lack of attendance at psychology-of-women or gender-related presentations or study groups, appear resistant, unaware that these changes will ultimately affect not only the way in which psychoanalysts think about women but about men.
