In these intriguing accounts, Susie Orbach, the celebrated author of Fat is a Feminist Issue, presents us with six imaginary clinical cases, including Adam, the serial seducer; Belle, the compulsive liar; and Joanne, the self-mutilator. Through them, Orbach presents an intriguing look into the hidden world of the consulting room. She demonstrates the way the therapist analyses her own feelings as well of those of the other person, making the therapy relationship a uniquely special place in which discoveries can be made, which enable the patient to change. Bravely, she details failure as well as success. The latter is not denoted by a triumphant denouement but by ensuring the patient is enabled to utilise new ways of thinking after therapy.

Ever wanted an insight into counselling? Or wished you could be a 'fly-on-the-wall' in a psychotherapy session? Couch Fiction allows you to peep through the key-hole of the therapy room door and, more than that, read the minds of the protagonists... Based on a case study of Pat (our sandal-wearing, cat-loving psychotherapist) and her new client, James (an ambitious barrister with a potentially harmful habit he can't stop), this graphic novel follows the anxieties, frustrations, mind-wanderings and break-throughs of each, through a year of therapy sessions together. Beautifully illustrated and accompanied by succinct and illuminating footnotes, this book offers a witty and thought-provoking exploration of the therapeutic journey, considering a range of skills, insights and techniques along the way.

It’s time to get past the idea that divorce equals failure. Sure, it may not be what you had in mind when you walked down the aisle, but if it’s the escape hatch into a better life, it should be filled with more promise. It can be celebrated. Ask Me About My Divorce is a spicy, fun, riveting collection of essays by women from all walks of life. With the unifying thread "I got divorced, and the world came into view," the words within will make readers laugh, cry, nod their heads, and feel inspired to do what they need to for themselves. These aren't stories from women tiptoeing around a difficult subject — they're about the ways divorce can be, in fact, a new lease on life.

Der Maßstab ist die von Kopf bis Fuß renovierte Frau." Susie Orbach "Praktisch die gesamte Debatte über Körper-Bilder und Schönheits(wahn)vorstellungen verdankt ihre Existenz den beharrlich entlarvenden Formulierungen von Susie Orbach." Naomi Wolf, Autorin von "Der Mythos Schönheit Nicht erst seit sie Lady Di wegen deren Bulimie behandelte, ist Susie Orbach eine der bekanntesten Psychotherapeutinnen unserer Zeit. Seit Jahrzehnten zeigt sie in ihren Büchern auf, wie unser Selbstwertgefühl durch unseren Körper geprägt und häufig destabilisiert wird. Einen entscheidenden Anteil hat daran die Schönheits-, Pharma- und Diätindustrie, deren Gewinn in dem Maße wächst, in dem wir unseren Körper als "nicht richtig" wahrnehmen. Der Körperfetischismus, der schnell zum Körperhass werden kann, ist längst kein Problem der Frauen mehr, Bulimie, Anorexie sind immer weiter verbreitete Phänomene bei Männern und auch Kindern. Und wenn sich - um nur ein Beispiel zu nennen - 50% der koreanischen Frauen ihre Augenlider so operieren lassen, dass sie "westlich" aussehen, dann ist der Körperhass der industrialisierten Welt ein heimlicher Exportschlager in Zeiten der Globalisierung. Susie Orbach zeigt auf, wodurch unser Körper geprägt wird. Welchen Einfluss haben kulturelles Umfeld, die Familie, der gesellschaftliche Zusammenhang, in dem wir uns bewegen? Welche Auswirkungen hat es, wenn wir pro Woche durchschnittlich mit 2000 bis 5000 Bildern digital manipulierter Körper konfrontiert werden? Aufrüttelnd, provokativ, engagiert und temperamentvoll. Susie Orbach hat ein fundiertes Buch vorgelegt, das von der amerikanischen und britischen Presse hoch gelobt wird. Ein Buch, das uns angeht.
