Intimacy & Solitude


Product Description
Product Details


Ah, love; a many-splendored but baffling thing! Dowrick, the founder of the Women's Press in England and author of Why Children? ( LJ 4/1/81), theorizes that the way people experience their sense of self reflects the way they experience other people. The importance of genuine love from birth in a caring family is vital to the development of a positive outlook as an adult. Intimacy and solitude in relationships are not as antithetical as they seem, Dowrick claims; rather, they are similar manifestations of the psyche. Her emphasis is on self-responsibility (for both straight and homosexual persons). This is a self-discovery book, not a quick fix formula. Intimacy is again a hot topic, making this title appropriate for public libraries with serious psychology collections as well as academic and professional libraries.-- Scott Johnson, Meridian Community Coll. Lib., Miss.

Psychotherapist Dowrick analyzes intimacy and solitude, which she sees not as opposites in conflict but rather as interdependent parts of a healthy whole. (Nov.)
