The Emotionally Absent Mother
A Guide to Self-healing and Getting the Love You MissedBook - 2010
If your mother was too tired, too busy, or too checked out to provide all the nurturing you needed for a strong foundation, this book is for you. It will help you identify what was missing, how this relates to your mother's own history and make-up, and what you can do now to fill the holes that were left by the mother who wasn't fully there. Psychotherapist Jasmine Lee Cori provides clear ways to sort through your emotions and to heal the past. She shows that what you thought of as personal "defects" can sometimes be linked to mothering "deficits," relieving self-blame. And she offers suggestions for how these missing elements can be made up for "now"--whether through therapy, close relationships, or by providing them for yourself.
