Through the use of group therapy sessions, conducted within a cognitive-behavioral framework, the author explores the cultural, social and parental influences on women's lives. In-depth case studies and transcripts from the sessions illustrate the women's actual step-by step process in examining such issues as:

    Motherhood as fulfillment
    Consequences of a two-career family
    Competitiveness among women
    Identifying sources of power within and outside oneself
