Details

"Giving birth to one's mother" is a symbolic act of self-creation that opens the door to autonomy and fulfilment. It is a model for breaking the pattern of the endless cycles of blame and forgiveness of mothers in which many women live out their lives. In this book, tales from the author's practice as a psychotherapist vividly illustrate how women can learn to let go of old patterns of behaviour and give birth to a new vision of their mothers. One learns to extricate herself from a stifling mother-daughter relationship, another admits the existence of her mother and brings her home from a 30-year-stay in a mental hospital. Another, adopted into a abusive family, embarks on an unlikely but ultimately life-changing and successful search for her birth mother.
