With Mothers Who Can't Love: A Healing Guide for Daughters, Susan Forward, Ph.D., author of the smash #1 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 35 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.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent book! This an an absolutely wonderful book. For me it picks up where 'Men who hate women...' left off. This book is liberating for any woman who came from a very abusive mother-daughter relationship. It has been research for me and I have now realized that many other women have experienced what I did and gone on to marry or be in relationships with women-haters too. I am not alone, which is unfortunate in a way. I wouldn't wish my experiences on anyone, but Susan Forward does a wonderful job of expressing what I and so many women have had to live through. And how we can come out as the fully realized women we know deep down we can be.
