9780099536703: Bittersweet: Facing Up to Feelings of Love, Envy and Competition in Women's Friendships

When your best friend makes you angry, why can’t you tell her?
 
As women pursue professional and personal goals, the support needed from female friends can be undermined by feelings of envy, competition, and anger. In this groundbreaking book, Luise Eichenbaum and Susie Orbach show:

· How mother-daughter relationships affect women’s desire to forge close adult friendships
· How to stop hiding painful feelings and speak up to your friends
· How to enhance feelings of autonomy and self-development while remaining "connected" to others
· Why "daring to differ" with friends can strengthen your value to each other as you strive for individuality
 
Compassionate and insightful, Between Women: Love, Envy, and Competition in Women’s Friendships will help you achieve a strong sense of self and enjoy richer and more enduring relationships with your friends.
 
"A touching and lively book. Any woman will find her own story somewhere in these pages." -- The New York Times Book Review
 
"The book’s message will ring true for all women." -- New York Woman

From Library Journal:

The authors, who founded and directed the Women's Therapy Centers in London and New York City and wrote Understanding Women and What Do Women Want, explore newly emerging differences between women in what they believe is a "post-feminist" period. Arguing that sisterly solidarity was easier to maintain when women faced more overt discrimination, they see conflicts and tensions as inevitabe when women move into the world of male endeavor. While individual stories exemplify these problems, the vignettes mostly reflect the lives of well-educated, affluent women. Topics include merging and separation, abandonment and envy, etc. For public libraries. Beverly Miller, Boise State Univ. Lib., Id .
