A Psychology of the Heart

About The Book

In Cherishment, Elisabeth Young-Bruehl and Faith Bethelard provide a wholly original way of thinking about familiar concepts such as love, attachment, and care, showing how deep-seated disappointments and fears of dependency keep so many of us from forming healthy relationships

Cherishment narrates a journey of discovery, and any reader on his or her own journey in the realm of the heart will feel cherished by it.
