Overview

Understanding Women is a classic. Luise Eichenbaum & Susie Orbach, co-founders of The Women's Therapy Centre, showcase their understanding of women's psychology through case vignettes of the many women they have worked with. Their original and enlightening theory brings the mother-daughter relationship into the heart of a girl's developing self. They explain women's often troubled relationship to their bodies, the myths around emotional dependency and independence, the dilemmas of sexuality, and the need to re-theorise attachment and differentiation so that it speaks to women's experience. The book discusses the process of therapy and the challenges on the therapist to exemplify a new way of working with women in psychotherapy.
