Drawing on Dinora Pines' lifetime of clinical experience this classic book provides a psychoanalytic understanding of women's relationships with their bodies, focusing on key moments in women's lives. With chapters organised to follow the female life-cycle, topics covered include: * the turbulence of adolescence * pregnancy and childbirth * infertility and abortion * menopause and old age * the traumatic effects of surviving the Holocaust. With a foreword from Susie Orbach, this book will be of interest to mental health professionals including counsellors, psychotherapists and psychoanalysts.

Dinora Pines, originally trained as a medical practitioner, was an eminent psychoanalyst in the British Society of Psycho-Analysis and lectured throughout the world. She died in 2002.
