Book Description

First published in 1994. This volume contains the proceedings of a historic meeting, attended by over 2,000 mental health professionals and lay people, to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the Karen Horney Psychoanalytic Centre in New York City. Each contributor to this book offers unique insight into the seminal work of Karen Horney, one of the first psychoanalysts to question Freud's male-centred theories and clinical practices.; The book includes accounts of the formative girlhood experiences that awakened Horney's spirit of independence and the intellectual and cultural currents of her time that influenced her work. A contribution by a Preeminent Sex Therapist Challenges The Notion That Liberated Women threaten the potency of men. Other contributors define the characteristics of relationships that foster or hinder women's psychological growth and discuss the conflicts faced by adolescent girls as they become aware of gender differences.
