'Years ago, I was on vacation and read The Emotionally Absent Mother. That book was one of many that woke me up... I began the process of reparenting and it's changed my life.' Dr. Nicole LePera, New York Times-bestselling author of How to Do the Work

Was your mother preoccupied or distant? Did she regularly demean you? 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 women and men heal the hidden wounds left by every kind of undermothering. In the second edition of this 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
- How to break free from the pattern of neglect and abuse with children you have now or may have in the future.
