Abstract

Across cultures and generations the meaning of being single and of dating varies significantly. Our work as mental health clinicians brings us into contact with many people who are in transition: looking for a partner, coming to grips with the loss of a relationship, restarting a partnership. What it means to be single is so multifaceted that we and our clients are bound to initially have different definitions. In this chapter I will share with you some of the things I have learned in working with people who are dealing with the developmental challenges of being single and repartnering.
