The dramas of families are the dramas of life, and in this remarkable book Scarf weaves a rich tapestry of the human story as she explores such topics as the nature of human love, nurturance, and attachment; sexuality and other appetites; substance abuse, including alcoholism and bulimia; the conscious and unconscious levels of a family's world; maladaptive yet common coping strategies, such as emotional triangling and scapegoating; and the eerie ways the past can exert an influence on a family in the present. These and so many other topics that affect a family's life over time are illuminated, and clarified, in Intimate Worlds, an astonishing and beautifully written book

4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Relationship expert Maggie Scarf shares in-depth stories of seven remarried couples, revealing the unique challenges they face as they strive to achieve lasting intimacy and familial harmony. It's estimated that 40 percent of new marriages in the US are remarriages, but the survival rate of second marriages is alarmingly low. Many remarrying couples set out with a sense of optimism, a belief that this marriage will usher in a life of happiness and family unity, but family dynamics can often strain new partnerships to the breaking point. The challenges of remarriage are pervasive, but little guidance has existed until now. Based on more than a decade of candid, revelatory interviews, The Remarriage Blueprint provides a crucial explanation of the obstacles to remarriage and the secrets to overcoming them

"Scarf knows the intricacies of the family structure and, even better, knows how to write well about them. In Intimate Worlds, as in most of our lives, family is riveting, white-knuckle stuff."--The Washington Post Book World In Intimate Worlds, bestselling author Maggie Scarf takes on the most important, and most universal, subject of her distinguished career: the family. As the first social organization that we each encounter, the family is where we learn the most fundamental and enduring lessons of our lives. Yet for too many, those lessons turn out to be painful, perplexing, and emotionally crippling. In this luminous, beautifully written book, Scarf brilliantly examines the complex ways in which families create their own intimate rules and patterns of interaction, and how by understanding these dynamics we can each improve the quality of our own family life. At the book's core are the stories of four fascinating families and the very different ways they enact the central issues of family life: power and intimacy; conflict and love; individuality and group identification. Spanning the spectrum of family health from dysfunctional through optimal, these families grapple with serious substance abuse, sexual problems, difficulties with attachment and nurturance, eating disorders, and buried resentments that surface generation after generation. As Maggie Scarf probes the motives and meanings of these compelling dramas, she reveals the essential truths of how families shape human identity. Combining lucid analysis with warm human understanding, Intimate Worlds is a major work that both clarifies and deepens our knowledge of family relationships. "Wrought with care and commitment, it is meticulously researched and will, I think, serve as a valuable resource for families struggling to understand themselves."--Los Angeles Times From the Trade Paperback edition
