Self Within Marriage

 

Marriage is a delicate balance between individuality and togetherness.  Clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst Richard Zeitner says that relationship and emotional difficulties occur when this careful balance is out of kilter.  Zeitner, who is the director of the Greater Kansas City Psychoanalytic Institute, has written a book entitled Self Within Marriage to help other therapists work with people as individuals and partners. The book is written from a decidedly psychoanalytic point of view--an approach that focuses on the unconscious--and originated with Sigmund Freud.
