A nationally recognized expert on the psychology of women shows how the anger and agony of the mother-daughter relationship can be replaced with a new bond based on understanding and respect.From Library Journal:
Written in the conversational style that typifies self-help books, this work explores cultural biases and the myths of angel-witch, perfect mother, and bad mother as the basis for daughters blaming mothers for everything that goes wrong. Drawing upon research and experience, clinical and research psychologist Caplan provides advice and techniques to daughters seeking improved, positive relationships with their mothers. She stresses the importance of daughters understanding biases, the tradition of motherhood, and other forces that shaped their mothers' lives. Included is a lengthy bibliography of fiction and nonfiction works related to the subject. Caplan is the author of The Myth of Women's Masochism ( LJ 10/1/85).
