Adult Daughters Of Alcoholics
Author: Dr. Robert J. Ackerman Ph.D.
This new edition of Perfect Daughters, a pivotal book in the Adult Children of Alcoholics &/or Dysfunctional Families (ACoA) movement, identifies what differentiates the adult daughters of alcoholics from other women.
Adult daughters of alcoholics — “perfect daughters” — operate from a base of harsh and limiting views of themselves and the world. Having learned that they must function perfectly in order to avoid unpleasant situations, these women often assume responsibility for the failures of others. They are drawn to chemically dependent men and are more likely to become addicted themselves. More than just a text that identifies these behavior patterns, this book collects the thoughts, feelings and experiences of twelve hundred perfect daughters, offering readers an opportunity to explore their own life’s dynamics and thereby heal and grow.
This edition contains updated information throughout the text, and completely new material, including chapters on eating disorders and abuse letters from perfect daughters in various stages of recovery, and helpful, affirming suggestions from Dr. Ackerman at the end of every chapter. Many found validation, hope, courage and support in the pages of the original Perfect Daughters, and now in this new edition, it is reaching and helping even more women! A Must Read!
