An Expert Look at Love, Intimacy and Personal Growth
Why do so many people have problems with love and intimacy? Why do some parents scapegoat their children? What is Parental Alienation Syndrome? What is the MMPI? Why must we grieve loss? Are the years in psychoanalytic psychotherapy worth it? What is a psychotherapy session like? After thirty years of theoretical formulations, the author pulls it all together in this comprehensive model of love relations by integrating evolutionary psychology, psychoanalysis, cognitive and social psychology. This theoretical model lets readers see why relationships can be so irrational.
