With Mothers Who Can’t
Love: A Healing Guide for Daughters, Susan Forward, PhD, author of the bestseller
Toxic Parents, offers a powerful look at the devastating impact unloving
mothers have on their daughters, and provides clear, effective techniques for
overcoming that painful legacy.
In more than thirty-five
years as a therapist, Forward has worked with large numbers of women struggling
to escape the emotional damage inflicted by the women who raised them.
Subjected to years of criticism, competition, role-reversal, smothering
control, emotional neglect and abuse, these women are plagued by anxiety and
depression, relationship problems, lack of confidence and difficulties with
trust. They doubt their worth, and even their ability to love.
Forward examines the
Narcissistic Mother, the Competitive Mother, the Overly Enmeshed mother, the Control
Freak, Mothers who need Mothering, and mothers who abuse or fail to protect
their daughters from abuse.
Filled with compelling
case histories, Mothers Who Can’t Love outlines the self-help techniques Forward has developed to
transform the lives of her clients, showing women how to overcome the pain of
childhood and how to act in their own best interests.
Warm and compassionate, Mothers
Who Can’t Love offers daughters the emotional support and tools they need
to heal themselves and rebuild their confidence and self-respect. Download and start listening now!
