  • pregnancy and childbirth
  • infertility and abortion

  • the traumatic effects of surviving the Holocaust.

With a foreword from Susie Orbach, this book will be of interest to mental health professionals including counsellors, psychotherapists and psychoanalysts.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Dinora Pines’ collection of papers republished now remains as refreshing, moving and profound as when they first came out. […] Her dedication to understand the dilemmas of the women who sought therapy with her, led her to extend the conventions of both psychoanalytic understandings and practice in deeply sensitive and useful ways.[…]Rereading this book brings Dinora and her compassion and intelligence alive once again."Susie Orbach, From the Foreword

"The way this book is structured makes reading it a pleasure. Each chapter is introduced by a summary of theories, with a minimum of jargon and a clarity of theme. This is followed by clinical examples and ends with conclusions drawn from her experiences. This gives the reader an appreciation of an expert clinician at work, whose honesty about admitting to herself her feelings in her countertransference, lead to such a deep understanding of her patients, which in turn helped them to become conscious of their unconscious behaviour. This is a rare, beautifully written and instructive book which should be read by a much wider audience than psychoanalysts." - Dr. Robert Gillen, Psychoanalysis Downunder, Issue 10, 2010

Review of first publication:

"The collection presents a clear and moving picture of a fine clinician's work and thinking." - Nancy Kulish, The Psychoanalytic Quarterly
