Includes bibliographical references. --- Review, December 2003: "We are all daughters, and that fact alone includes us in a world full of many things: pain, fear, expectations, anger, hurt, love, pride, joy, disappointment, fulfillment and much, much more. Being a daughter and having a mother is one of the most profound experiences of a woman's life. It can be a wonderful, empowering experience or a frightening, disabling one." In this work, the authors present the reader with a workshop in a book - a place a daughter or mother can go to examine and heal what can be the most intense relationship of their lives, a place that allows a woman to reflect the good in daughters and mothers and to heal the hurtful. Just in time for the holidays!

Notes: 
Review, Network Summer 2001: A resource for sexual-minority youth that supports their resiliency, determination, and diversity as well as acknowledging the hardships they may encounter. Personal narratives of a diverse group of lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgender, questioning, and unlabelled adolescents are integrated with empirical data drawn from developmental research. Savin-Williams reveals that the coming out experience is greatly influenced by gender, and chapters highlight common mother-daughter, mother-son, father-daughter, father-son dynamics. Excellent summaries set a research agenda and provide a guide for sexual-minority youth and their families to negotiate healthy relationships.
