Editors: Leyla Navaro (Bođaziçi University, Istanbul, Turkey, ) Robi Friedman (Haifa University, Haifa, Israel), Sharan L. Schwartzberg (Tufts University, Boston, MA, USA)
Book Description:
As powerful and power inducing emotions, desire and passion are two of the most challenging forces in one's life. The vitality they induce may be both enhancing and devastating depending on their use. Despite that following one's desire or passion is currently presented as a dream to be aimed for, both men and women suffer from either hindrance or obstruction of their desires in the course of social roles and daily life chores. This new book focuses on challenges and difficulties of gender roles in acknowledging, moreover following one’s own desires and passions while trying to understand if these powerful emotions are understood and interpreted in their own right in clinical settings.
