The Healing Connection: How Women Form Relationships in Therapy and in Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1976, Jean Baker Miller published Toward a New Psychology of Women, a feminist classic that went on to sell more than 200,000 copies. The Healing Connection builds on the theoretical insights of Toward a New Psychology of Women to show how women's experiences in relationships — whether with family members, friends and colleagues, or therapists — shape psychological health.

Miller and Stiver analyze the subtle process of empathetic listening and responding that takes place in day-to-day relationships and show convincingly how such moments of "connection" lead to psychological growth. They argue that repeated experiences of "disconnection", or the failure of empathy in relationships, cause most psychological problems, including anxiety, isolation, and depression.

Through vivid examples drawn from their own practice as therapists, Miller and Stiver show how women can learn to experience real connection and to overcome psychological problems. They outline a new kind of psychotherapy in which the therapist is not a neutral figure but a participant with emotional responses of her own.

Certain to become a landmark book in women's psychology, The Healing Connection offers new understanding and hope for women seeking profound changes in their lives.

Book News Annotation:

Two decades after the publication of Toward a New Psychology of Women, Miller and Stiver outline its practical applications, demonstrating how women's experiences in relationships shape psychological health. They analyze the process of empathetic listening and responding, proving how such moments of connection lead to psychological growth, while the repeated experience of disconnection--or the failure of empathy in relationships--causes psychological problems. A new kind of psychotherapy is specified, in which the therapist becomes an active participant.
