about this book

In The Healing Connection, Jean Baker Miller, M.D., author of the best-selling Toward a New Psychology of Women, and Irene Stiver, Ph.D., argue that relationships are the integral source of psychological health. In so doing they offer a new understanding of human development that points a way to change in all of our institutions-work, community, school, and family-and is sure to transform lives.

“Miller and Stiver give us a soaring new vision of what matters most in our lives-authentic and mutually enhancing relationships. . . .This is a wise and wonderful book about the deepest and most precious longings that we humans experience.” -Harriet Lerner, Ph.D., author of The Dance of Anger

The Healing Connection is a welcome and long overdue synthesis and integration of the brilliant thinking of Jean Baker Miller, Irene Stiver and their colleagues at the Stone Center. . . . This book presents a quietly revolutionary shift in the basic theory of human development. . . . A fitting capstone to [the] brilliant and revolutionary [Toward a New Psychology of Women].” -Alice C. Lawler, Ph.D., Contemporary Psychology Journal

“How we form and sustain intimate relationships through crises, frailties, betrayals, deep disagreements and long arid stretches. . . . A useful lens through which to view our atomistic culture and the therapeutic process.” -Martha Manning, New York Times Book Review

“Wonderfully readable . . . Miller and her colleague Irene Stiver (both legendary therapists and supervisors) have added chapter and verse documenting the importance of connection for women. . . . But whether you’re a man or a woman, reading this book is almost as special as finding a really great therapist.” -Alan Stone, M.D., Psychiatric Times

“A gem. . . . Pick up this very readable volume, and treat yourself to a book that is important to us, our patients, and the future of our society.” -Marsha Pravder Mirkin, Ph.D., Journal of Feminist Family Therapy
