Description
Information
Revised Edition.

This new edition of 'Perfect Daughters', a pivotal book in the ACoA movement, identifies what differentiates the adult daughters of alcoholics from other women.

When this groundbreaking book first appeared over ten years ago, Dr Ackerman identified behaviour patterns shared by daughters of alcoholics. 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 behaviour 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.

This book is essential for every one who found validation, hope, courage and support in the pages of the original 'Perfect Daughters', as well as new readers and every therapist who confronts these issues.
