Behind Closed Doors – by Dr. Sheeza Mohsin

Dr. Sheeza Mohsin has recently written her own book titled ‘Behind Closed Doors’, now available on Amazon. The book is very unique considering all the details, opinions and experience Dr. Sheeza has penned to paper, are focused on South Asian experiences. Although it has a leaning toward immigrant South Asians, the book seems relatable to most of us struggling with conservative upbringing and new-age thinking.

In ‘Behind Closed Doors’, Dr. Sheeza dissects the core causes of why individuals, couples and families struggle with tradition. It sheds light on how culture, values, and conventions affect our family lives. She outlines steps on how to start thinking about changing behaviors that are negative and stay mentally healthy.  The book serves as a remedy for many family problems that are taboo such as sexuality, marital issues like infidelity and taking care of aging parents and special needs children. Dr. Sheeza translates and replants these interventional methods in a very ‘desi’ manner. The stories she shares from the view of people who are experiencing the pain connect with many so they don’t feel alone.

Furthermore, the book helps individuals, couples and families realize the reason they have been struggling. This helps people work on their mistakes, issues, and reasons for the uninvited unhappiness. Moreover, Dr. Sheeza’s step-by-step guide to challenging and changing yourself helps in more ways than one can imagine, given we don’t have South Asian experts in Mental Health and relationships in any significant numbers.

So, if you really want to feel worthy and confident again, ignoring all your troubles, give ‘Behind Closed Doors’ a read as soon as possible.
