This chapter reviews the feminist framework of objectification theory to help providers understand the unique experiences of women who live in a culture that views and values their bodies as sexual objects. The literature related to sexual objectification is explored, as well as the empirical links to mental health problems. The literature on sexual exploitation of women who experience serious mental illness is also examined. The implications of these unique intersecting experiences of women with serious mental illness are discussed. This chapter includes two case narratives, a clinical strategies list, discussion questions, activities, and a clinical worksheet (“Gender Role Analysis Worksheet”).
