Short Synopsis
Full of compassion for children and mothers alike, this second edition of Jasmin Lee Cori's The Emotionally Absent Mother now addresses childhood emotional neglect, abuse, and their effects; psychological disorders that may have affected one's mother; and how grown children can approach their mothers now.

Full Synopsis
The Groundbreaking Guide to Self-Healing and Getting the Love You Missed

Was your mother preoccupied, distant, or even demeaning? Have you struggled with relationships—or with your own self-worth? Often, the grown children of emotionally absent mothers can't quite put a finger on what's missing from their lives. The children of abusive mothers, by contrast, may recognize the abuse—but overlook its lasting, harmful effects.

Psychotherapist Jasmin Lee Cori has helped thousands of men and women heal the hidden wounds left by every kind of undermothering. In this second edition of her pioneering book, with compassion for mother and child alike, she explains:

● Possible reasons your mother was distracted or hurtful—and what she was unable to give

● The lasting impact of childhood emotional neglect and abuse

● How to find the child inside you and fill the "mother gap" through reflections and exercises

● How to secure a happier future for yourself (and perhaps for your children)

“This book is a revelation to those of us whose mothering was short of what we needed." ---Connie Dawson, PhD, coauthor of Growing Up Again

“With compassion and sparkling clarity, Jasmin Lee Cori describes the effects of being under-mothered and what it takes to overcome them." ---Evelyn Bassoff, PhD, author of Mothering Ourselves

“Jasmin Lee Cori has done a superb job of describing the importance of childhood attachment needs and the psychological wounds that get inflicted when an emotionally absent mother cannot meet those needs well enough." ---Shirley Jean Schmidt, MA, LPC, author of The Developmental Needs Meeting Strategy

“With a compassionate and steady voice, Jasmin Lee Cori guides the reader through the difficult terrain faced by adults who have grown up without sufficient emotional mothering." ---Kathryn Black, MA, author of Mothering Without a Map
