The Search for Intimacy
In our contemporary culture there is a deep and widespread longing for close relationships. The thousands of friendship clubs, matrimonial agencies, and meeting centers all point to the fundamental desire for human warmth. Deep in our psyches lies the need to be loved just as we are. Yet that need is not always fulfilled. Crisis clinics, alcoholism centers, counseling agencies, and divorce courts all indicate how difficult it can be for people to draw close and stay close to others.
In offering this book on intimacy, Elaine Storkey hopes to help readers think about themselves and their relationships in the context of the culture that surrounds us and the changes that press in on us. Whether the spotlight is on friendship, mothers and daughters, colleagues at work, marriage and sexual intimacy, or coping with the past, readers will find help in its beam. This book will not only be an aid to understanding relationships, but it will also give many people the courage to make them better.
