The Dance of Intimacy takes a careful look at relationships where intimacy is most challenged by too much emotional distance, too much intensity, or simply too much pain. In clear, direct, and dramatic terms, Dr. Lerner illustrates how we can move differently in these relationships, be they with a distant or unfaithful spouse, a depressed sister, a difficult mother, an alcoholic father, an uncommitted lover, a dying parent, or an estranged family member. And she teaches us about the differences that make a difference: the changes we can make in one or two significant relationships that will affect our capacity for intimacy and selfhood for a lifetime.

The Dance of Intimacy offers no quick fix for the human dilemma that we all confront. Instead, Dr. Lerner offers us the most solid, respectful, and helpful insights on intimate relationships that both men and women may ever encounter. Picking up where the best-selling The Dance of Anger left off, Dr. Lerner redefines the meaning of intimacy for today, and shows how good relationships can be strengthened and difficult ones healed.

    " This book was recommended to me by my therapist, and I am so pleased that I read it. It has helped immensely with understanding relationship patterns, and the difference between intensity and intimacy. I learned so much from this book, and would recommend it to anybody who sometimes finds themselves baffled by the process of negotiating close relationships, or who has been experiencing relationship difficulties with a particular person/people.

    " Love the stories. I have first family trouble and the info is very helpful. I listened to the abridged version. I will probably read the full book too. "

    " I read this after The Dance of Anger and I liked it just as much. It helped me to understand that conflicts are best resolved when I first look at my part in the relationship dynamic. This book helped me to gain a sense of independence and autonomy in my twenties that continues today. It also helped me to walk away from damaging partnerships. I find Harriet Lerner's books very helpful. She provides accessible therapeutic interventions for any reader. "
