Calling upon knowledge and experience from her roles as child psychiatrist, mother and one time child, Dr. Pressman demonstrates that psychiatry's marriage to a binary paradigm deters open enquiry, imaginative ideas and innovative approaches. Or navigates the waters of many islands of knowledge including psychiatry, self-help and integrative medicine. In a style that ranges from the academic to the philosophical to the homey, this quixotic narrative inspires both personal and professional self-reflection and encourages discovering who we are and who our children are. Unlike her colleagues who are determined to crack the genetic code, and for whom knowledge is power, the author is unafraid to write about the unknown, and the vital role it plays in all our lives. She suggests ways in which this narrow line of thought may be widened and deepened in order to promote fresh observation and discovery and return to a humanistic approach.
