With full grey cloth and tipped-in-photograph. A long out of print title rare in any condition.... The title of the book is a term derived from psychiatry, which means that each and every child should be entitled to a loving and caring environment by her or his parents.This child will enter life with the feeling of being held. Held by her parents, her self and by life itself. The one child that for any reason grows up in a family where this love is not possible, will, as an adult, constantly find herself in an endless, desperate search for holding. And in some cases will experience a feeling of falling.
The search for somewhere to hold on to will express itself in various ways; symbiotic love affairs, destructiveness, escaping, a constant feeling of alienation, of being outside. The book's story is, in many ways, a self portrait, but deep down inside, human beings are very alike. In our searching, the questions, confusions, we may find a universal strand of humanity; the difference between us lies often in the answers. And therefore, this work is a self portrait with universally human questions/stories. This item is in the category "Books & Magazines\Antiquarian & Collectible".
