This book emphasizes the significance of loving feelings in psychotherapy, how and why they are vital, and what gets in the way of valuing them. The research is grounded in a confluence of psychoanalytic and philosophical inquiry and attends to the way in which humanistic ethics and psychological health interact. There is significant interest in the value of pro-social emotions and how they contribute to healthy functioning, and a growing emphasis on studying and understanding feelings that contribute to flourishing. This book integrates contributions from a variety of influential sources and explores their shared root: the need for tenderness toward ourselves and each other. Its conception of loving is informed by many thinkers, including philosopher Martha Nussbaum; as a result the book is in also a study in ethics, and aims to make it more difficult to avoid, deny or otherwise minimize the need for loving feelings in psychotherapy.

Table of Contents

1. Context. 2. A Loving Ethic: Logic in the Service of Love 3. Seeing Feelingly 4. The Taboo on Tenderness: Attenuating the Importance of Love Orientation 5. Liberating Love
