New Book by Susan Pollet: Women in Crisis

This book consists of stories about women patients of an accomplished woman psychiatrist, whose experiences exemplify challenges faced by many women, to varying degrees. I drew from my observations as a lawyer who worked on thousands of cases in Family Court for over twenty years, from my participation as a leader in women’s bar associations for almost forty years, from listening to friends, colleagues, and strangers, and from researching and reading the work of mental health professionals. The legal aspects of these stories are not the focus, but, rather, are a background component. It is the human aspects of the struggles of women in crisis which I found compelling, and it is for that reason that I chose the vehicle of a psychiatrist to bring them to the fore. In addition, I brought a feminist and humanist perspective to my presentation, as many of the conflicts women face are the result of a society that still makes them second class citizens. (Author)
