“...extremely interesting and enlightening. Each chapter’s topics come alive and will be especially appealing to both profesional and lay readers. Dr. Maass cites relevant research that informs the reader in a very understandable way.”
- Jane Duckworth, PhD, Professor Emerita - Counseling Psychology, Ball State University

Through the use of group therapy sessions, conducted within a cognitive-behavioral framework, the author explores the cultural, social and parental influences on women's lives. In-depth case studies and transcripts from the sessions illustrate the women's actual step-by step process in examining such issues as: self-determination, motherhood as fulfillment, the consequences of a two-career family, divorce, infidelity, competitiveness among women, and identifying sources of power within and outside of oneself.
