In her latest book Mothers Who Can't Love: A Healing Guide for Daughters, Susan Forward offers a powerful look at the devastating impact unloving mothers have on their daughters and, more importantly, provides clear, effective techniques for overcoming that painful legacy.


In more than 35 years as a therapist, Forward has worked with scores of daughters struggling to escape the emotional damage inflicted by the women who raised them. Subjected to years of criticism, competition, role-reversal, smothering control, emotional neglect and abuse, these daughters are plagued by anxiety and depression, relationship problems, lack of confidence and difficulties with trust. They doubt their worth, and even their ability to love.

Filled with compelling case histories, Mothers Who Can’t Love examines the Narcissistic Mother, the Competitive Mother, the Overly Enmeshed Mother, the Control Freak, Mothers who need Mothering, and mothers who abuse or fail to protect their daughters from abuse.


Forward’s warm and compassionate style shines through in Mothers Who Can’t Love, outlining the innovative self-help techniques she’s developed to transform the lives of her clients, showing women how to overcome the pain of childhood and how to act in their own best interests.


Mothers Who Can’t Love offers daughters the emotional support and tools they need to heal themselves and rebuild their confidence and self-respect.







In Praise of Susan Forward's new book Mother's Wo Can't Love!


"In this powerful guide, Forward (Toxic Parents) offers a lifeline for those who have suffered through a dysfunctional relationship with a parent... While this title is labeled as a guide for women whose mothers are unable to love, its sound advice is applicable to persons of any gender. And while readers may be overwhelmed with painful memories at some junctures—an eventuality Forward expects and addresses—this book should be considered required reading for anyone who had an abusive childhood."

— Publishers Weekly


"A riveting, compassionate guide to helping women transcend the wounds inflicted by their rejecting or abusive mothers."

— Janis Abrahms Spring, Ph.D., Author of
How Can I Forgive You? The Courage to Forgive, The Freedom Not To


"Susan Forward has saved millions of lives with her profound wisdom that children raised by abusive parents need not “forgive and forget” to heal and move on to happy, healthy lives. A powerful guide to self healing."

— Carole H. Brower, Research Professor,
Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, UCLA
