Library JournalComing to the assistance of the many women who are romantically involved with men who are overly devoted to their mothers, licensed psychologist Adams explains how enmeshment occurs and how to start and sustain the recovery process. Drawing on 25 years of clinical experience, the author illustrates how mothers who lean on their sons for closeness and companionship produce men who experience ambivalence and indecision in adult relationships. The author relates how these men try too hard to please people, feel guilty and inadequate, show displaced anger, and experience sexual problems. He offers compassionate guidance for healing and for building healthy relationships. An excellent treatment for all libraries.
