A new book explores how individuals can hold on to their identities while being part of a couple.

Kansas City, MO – Marriage is a delicate balance between individuality and togetherness. Clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst Richard Zeitner says that relationship and emotional difficulties occur when this careful balance is out of kilter. Zeitner, who is a director of the Greater Kansas City Psychoanalytic Institute, has written a book entitled Self Within Marriage to help other therapists work with people as individuals and partners. The book is written from a decidedly psychoanalytic point of view - an approach that focuses on the unconscious - and originated with Sigmund Freud.
