Description: For decades, the conventional view of therapists has been that of a neutral listener, emotionally unaffected by the patient. Now Susie Orbach describes the alchemy that is at the heart of the therapeutic process. In her compelling new book, she creates six therapy case histories, composite characters based on the hundreds of clients she has seen over the years. All suffer the problems of modern life: depression, loneliness, compulsive eating, consuming sexual desires, and fear of attachment. Each story explores not just the client's problems, but -- with striking honesty -- Susie's response.

She is convinced that healing stems from two essential activities: reconstruction of the past and the nuanced exploration of the ways in which the pain and complexity of past relationships are re-enacted in the therapeutic relationship. The Impossibility of Sex breaks new ground by taking us into the center of this magical process. It is an important and useful work for both therapist and patient.
