Women’s treatment needs are impacted by gender differences.
And in women with serious mental health conditions (PTSD, major depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia) traumatic experiences tied to gender and power differentials are often a major component in the development and presentation of their symptoms. From motherhood and family relationships to sexual, racial, ethnic, class, work and religion, these differences encompass every facet of female identity.
But traditional mental health models and training neglect to account for the impacts of female clients intersecting identities on treatment. Clinicians are left struggling to get results, lacking the tools to treat this population in a non-pathologizing way.
