Author Introduction

크리스티안 노스럽(지은이)

의학 박사이자 산부인과 전문의다. <뉴욕타임즈> 선정 베스트셀러 작가이며, 여성 건강 분야를 개척한 작가로도 유명하다. 여성이 자기 몸에 가장 잘 맞는 건강 증진 방법을 배워 활기차게 살아갈 수 있도록 돕는 일에 전념하고 있다. 《그 사람은 왜 나를 아프게 할까》는 우리 주변에서 흔히 볼 수 있는, 삶의 생기와 긍정성을 망가뜨리는 불균형한 인간관계에서 비롯된 상처를 치유하고 어둠에서 벗어나기까지의 과정을 담았다. 감수성이 예민해 쉽게 상처 입는 유형의 사람들이 고통을 극복하고 자기 긍정을 회복하는 길을 제시하고 있다. 지은 책으로 《여성의 몸 여성의 지혜》를 비롯해 《엄마 딸의 지혜》 《폐경기 여성의 몸 여성의 지혜》 등이 있다. 특히 《여성의 몸 여성의 지혜》는 13개 언어로 번역되는 등 세계적으로 주목을 받았다.
