This paper intends to point out feminist family therapy as a critical
approach in the family therapy field. Initially we describe feminism
like a political, theoretical and epistemological field, as well as the
incorporation of feminist assumptions by psychotherapy. We also describe
the emergence of feminist family theraphy and the major feminist
criticism against traditional systemic family therapy. At the end, we
highlight feminist family therapy like an engaged practice that reviews
traditional and hegemonic knowledge about gender roles and places in the
general social scheme.
