The Emotionally Absent Mother will help you understand what was missing from your childhood, how this relates to your mother's own history, and how you can fill the "mother gap" by:
Examining the past with compassion for yourself and your mother
Finding the child inside of you and learning to mother yourself
Opening to the archetype of the good mother
Allowing friends and loved ones to provide support, guidance, and other elements of good mothering that you missed
Psychotherapist Jasmin Lee Cori traces perceived personal "defects" back to mothering deficits, relieving self-blame. And by teaching today's undermothered adults to cultivate the mothering they missed, she helps them secure happier futures - for themselves and their children.

This book really has help to relieve the sense of guilt I'd been feeling at not being able to get along with my now needy recently widowed mother.
I finally understand the mechanics of our relationship and I'm able to be more relaxed about it being just what it is and knowing it's not my fault I'm not a bad daughter!

This book will save you years of therapy
I have been in and out of therapy for 25 years and have never come across such a powerful self help resource as this book. It is clear, concise, and every word has impact. I cannot express my gratitude for how this book is helping me understand my mother, myself, my relationships, and my fellow human beings. Thank you Jasmin Lee Cori for helping the under mothered of this world.

one word: healing
If you could sum up The Emotionally Absent Mother in three words, what would they be?
helped me heal
What did you like best about this story?
I liked that this is not a blame game for mothers. It's about making us understand why mothers did what they did. That helped me so much to see my mother differently and it helped me to stop blaming her, she was a victim of life circumstances herself. This book is amazing. In just these hours it took me to listen to it I made more progress than in 40 years of my life.
Have you listened to any of Emily Durante’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
no, but it opened my heart
Any additional comments?
I think this book replaces lifetime of therapy
