Book Description

This is the second  issue of Psychoanalytic Inquiry devoted to mothers and daughters.  This project began as the mother-daughter bond was calling out for attention in light of the many advances in our understanding of female psychology.  The goal of female development is no longer considered to be a severing of the mother-daugher bond to attain autonomy and sexual maturity.  What, then, are its vicissitudes as it is revisited, reworked, and transformed as the girl and her mother grow and develop and ultimately attain a state of interdependence?  The relational context of development is now considered: gender-related differences in behavior and in parental interaction; and the girl's special relationship with her mother and her mother's body and the importance to her of her own body with its special attributes, contours, and sensations.
