Mothers: Their Power and Influence by the late English author Ann Dally, a psychiatrist turned medical historian, is her vintage behavioural psychology book, free again for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press’ The Odyssey Press imprint.
This was originally published in 1976 by Weidenfeld and Nicolson. This was intended at the time (during the 1970s) to be an accessibly-written in-depth guide to parent and child behaviours and environmental influences intended to aid mothers to better understand the psychological underpinnings of their relationships with their children.
The text draws upon the author’s extensive observations from her psychiatric practice, with true accounts of the mothers and children she encountered, as well as selected excerpts from literary authors who wrote expressively about the effects of their own relationships with their mothers.
