This chapter focuses on the psychosocial health care of women and suggests shifts in the paradigm of the approach in order to meet the needs of women that may be unique to them. Theories designed to describe normal psychological development of men resulted in description of women's development as aberrant or arrested. Relational theory sees women in a context broader than that assigned by their reproductive abilities or gender driven caretaking roles. Good psychosocial care of women respects relationships as fundamental and is capable of viewing the world through relational lenses. Providing humane, thoughtful psychosocial care to young women during the period of enormous transition and growth that marks adolescence is exciting and often very challenging for the provider. As women emerge from adolescence into adulthood, issues of relationship persist, but the complexities of attaining a livelihood, sustaining oneself, and possible partnering come more directly to the fore.
