“A wise and compassionate book that will teach the reader much about the complex emotions our family and love relationships engender.” (Lillian B. Rubin, Ph.D., author of Intimate Strangers)
“Subtle and literate, The Dance of Intimacy is like a long, revealing conversation with a wise and compassionate friend.” (Maggie Scarf)
“Dr. Lerner has a truly remarkable ability to analyze our problems with intimacy. She has written a hopeful, respectful, and transforming book.” (Carol C. Nadelson, M.D., former president of the American Psychiatric Association)
All intimate relationships can be terribly damaged by too much distance, too much intensity or simply too much pain.
In clear, direct and dramatic terms, feminist psychotherapist Harriet G. Lerner illustrates how we can move differently in these key relationships – be they with a distant or unfaithful spouse, a depressed sister, or difficult mother, an uncommitted lover or a family member that we have written off.
Using poignant examples from case studies and stories from the author's own life 'The Dance of Intimacy' illustrates the steps that women can take towards more solid and intimate relationships with others.
Whatever your definition of intimacy, this book will challenge and broaden it, as the author provides a sound framework for understanding how we get in – and out – of trouble with the most important people in our lives.
