"Counseling Women Across the Life Span: Empowerment, Advocacy, and Intervention is very timely and fills a much-needed gap in the literature. One of the unique features of this book is that it is multidisciplinary and can be useful to anyone studying gender in the social sciences, as well as practical applications for counselors. This book can also stand alone as a self-help empowerment book for woman and men-allies to empower women of all ages. I applaud Dr. Schwarz for the organization and scaffolding to provide a distinct lens that is sure to advocate for all women!"

"As a clinical social worker who has worked many years in outpatient mental health and most extensively in the field of violence against women, I am pleased to share my reaction to Counseling Women and Girls Across the Life Span. Many excellent publications contain modalities, strategies and techniques in counseling theory. What this book does very effectively is to juxtaposition counseling theory with the socialization and power imbalance inherent in the lives of women and girls in our society.
Of important note is the final chapter that discusses our male allies. Dispelling the myth that men are the enemies of feminist theory is critical in bringing theorists and clinicians together in this work that is so important and has such potential to impact sustaining change.
I found Counseling Girls Across the Life Span to be a very well developed and organized book that can provide an important tool for all of us who work with women and girls in our practice and understand how important it is to consider every nuance that impacts on our clients lives."
