Product Description

Published USA, 2009
Drawing on over two decades of experience as a therapist specializing in women's health and interviews with suffering daughters,
Dr. Karyl McBride helps women recognize the widespread effects of emotional abuse and create an individualized program for self-protection, resolution and complete recovery. Narcissistic mothers teach their daughters that love is not unconditional, that it is given only when they behave in accordance with maternal expectations and whims. As adults, these daughters have difficulty overcoming feelings of inadequacy, disappointment, emotional emptiness and sadness. They may also have a fear of adandonment that leads them to form unhealthy romantic relationships, as well as a tendency to perfectionism and unrelenting self-criticism or to self-sabotage and frustration. In a warm and sympathetic book, the author provides advice for maintaining healthy love relationships and friendships.
