New, revised edition of this bold and exciting book. More and more women confess uneasily to finding motherhood as much a source of pain as pleasure. Rozsika Parker presents a new understanding of maternal ambivalence, suggesting that the coexistence of love and hate can stimulate and sharpen a mother's awareness of what is going on between her and her child. Drawing on interviews, clinical material from her practice as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and a range of literary sources, Torn in Two is original and accessible. With new readings of the work of Klein, Winnicott, Bowlby and others, this book offers invaluable - and often reassuring - insight into the conflicts confronting women at every stage of motherhood.

Review:

A very rich book full of case material. * SELF AND SOCIETY * Her book may help reassure other mothers that they are not alone in experiencing such bewildering, contradictory emotions towards their children. * THE TIMES * Gripping stuff. * IRISH TIMES * TORN IN TWO is a major and novel contribution to our understanding of the complexities of motherhood with implications that branch out in many directions * Juliet Mitchell *
