Electra vs Oedipus: The Drama of the Mother-Daughter Relationship

Author(s): Hendrika C. Freud

Mother/Daughter | Couple & Family Therapy

Electra vs Oedipus explores the deeply complex and often turbulent relationship between mothers and daughters. In contrast to Sigmund Freud¿s conviction that the father is the central figure, the book puts forward the notion that women are in fact far more (pre)occupied with their mother.

Drawing on the author¿s extensive clinical experience, the book provides numerous case studies which shed light on women¿s emotional development. Topics include:

  • love and hate between mothers and daughters

  • the history of maternal love

  • childbirth and depression

  • rejected mothers.

Electra vs Oedipus will be a valuable resource for psychoanalysts, psychotherapists and all those with an interest in the dynamics of the mother¿daughter relationship.
