Description

This book is the first to address the psychological impact of sexual harassment and gender discrimination from both a clinical and theoretical perspective. In the first portion, Lenhart provides a comprehensive summary and integration of existing literature on the topic and presents relevant aspects of the workplace and legal environments. The second portion of the book deals with the psychodynamics of sexual harassment and gender discrimination, placing these violations in proper psychological perspective, along the same lines as rape, battering and other forms of gender-based abuse. With abundant and illustrative case studies, the wide spectrum of psychological consequences of discrimination is discussed and an effective and integrative model for intervention and treatment is presented.
