Women's relationship expert and creative arts therapist team up to explore why some women settle for diet relationships that leave them longing for more.
A trailblazing sociologist and creative arts therapist team up, in partnership with Sense Publishers, to challenge pop culture's stereotyped portrayals of women by creating a collection of stories and art that portray real experiences of settling for low-fat love and struggles to build authentic identities and relationships in a context in which women made to feel they are never enough.
Low-Fat Love, a concept developed by sociologist and relationship expert, Dr. Patricia Leavy, taps into how women often settle in love and life. Low-Fat Love is the subject and title of Leavy's genre-busting chick-lit empowerment novel based on a decade of interview research with women, which today celebrates its 5th anniversary.
The award-winning scholar who created the genre "social fiction" in which researchers represent their studies through popular literature so public audiences can access them, releases 20th book.
Sociologist-turned-novelist Patricia Leavy, PhD, explores appearance versus reality - how our lives and relationships look to others versus how they really are - the importance of female friendships, and how money and power can shape relationships.
