|An essential work for readers seeking compassionate, wise guidance about the powerful relationship between mothers and their sons and daughters. An internationally acclaimed psychologist and writer unlocks the mysteries of this complicated bond.|
From the Publisher:
Mother love is often seen as sacred, but for many children the relationship is a painful struggle. Using the newest research on human attachment and brain development, Terri Apter, an internationally acclaimed psychologist and writer, unlocks the mysteries of the complicated bond. She showcases the five different types of difficult mother?the angry mother, the controlling mother, the narcissistic mother, the envious mother, and the emotionally neglectful mother?and reveals the patterns of behavior seen in each type. She explains why a mother has such a powerful impact on us and why we continue to care about her responses long after we have outgrown our dependence, and she shows how we can conduct an ?emotional audit? on ourselves to overcome the power of the complex feelings a difficult mother inflicts. In the end the book acknowledges the extra challenges facing sons and daughters of difficult mothers but also celebrates their great resilience.
