It is not a guide to the halachos (laws) of taharas hamishpacha. Rather, it enables a woman who has anxiety regarding these matters overcome her anxiety, by guiding her through an evidence-based step-by-step program using proven cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques. It can be used as a self-help book or as a treatment manual in a therapy setting.
The book teaches how to deal with uncertainty, fear of taking risks, and extreme fear of sinning. It addresses how women can learn to face these challenges without compromising on their Jewish values. And to the contrary, how Jewish values encourage living with joy and happiness rather than anxiety and fear.
It teaches how to learn to take risks, how to identify feared consequences, and how to set up an exposure hierarchy. It also teaches bossing back techniques and what to do (and not to do) about obsessions in general, and specifically before and after tevilah. The book includes reproducible worksheets and mikvah preparation timetables.
