The trauma of moving: psychological issues for women
The challenges faced by those who relocate are enormous. It is, however, a theme which has received little attention from either therapists or researchers. This volume reports on a study which describes how women dealt with moving home. Issues addressed include the extended time required to re-create a home and develop a sense of connectedness to their new environment, unexpected psychological reactions and making friends. Also addressed are specific methods for intervention for those who counsel women who have moved or are facing a move.
