9780393705805: Single in a Married World: A Life Cycle Framework for Working with the Unmarried Adult

Single in a Married World challenges and informs therapists to see resources rather than deficits in singlehood. Schwartzberg, Berliner, and Jacob have created a map into which all roads do not lead to marriage, but rather to emotional health, connectedness to family and friends, a sense of meaning and honoring difference. The authors transform being single from a ‘problem’ to be solved in therapy to a life to be lived with integrity, commitment, and zest.” ―Evan Imber-Black, Ph.D., Director, Family & Group Studies, Department of Psychiatry, Albert Einstein College of Medicine

This guide shows how therapists can help single adults stop perceiving the lack of marital status as a central life story and focus instead on defining an authentic self. This involves looking not only at personal expectations, but also at society's stigmatization of single adults.

From the Back Cover:

Using a multicontextual life cycle framework, this book shows how the therapist can help the single adult make the shift from seeing the lack of marital status as a central life story to defining an authentic self, whether of not marriage is on the horizon. This involves looking not only at expectations within the family but also at society's stigmatization and marginalization of single adults. The therapeutic map outlined here takes into account the societal context, the familial context, and the developmental life cycle context.

About the Author:

Betty Carter is a therapist specializing in family therapy and is the founder of the Family Institute of Westchester in 1977.
