Overview

“Readers [of Side by Side] will come away with a rich perspective and a renewed ability to connect head and heart so that every mother/daughter will have a richer, more satisfying relationship.” —Dr. Drew Pinsky, host of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew

Renowned family and child psychiatrist Dr. Charles Sophy’s Side by Side offers a proven strategy to restore loving and effective communication between mothers and daughters. Dr. Sophy, Medical Director for the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services and regular guest on the Today Show and Larry King Live, has found that the most promising—and problematic—family dynamic is the one between mother and daughter. Dr. Sophy developed the program presented in Side by Side in response to this realization. In the vein of Deborah Tannen’s You’re Wearing That? and Christiane Northrup’s Mother Daughter Wisdom, Side by Side offers valuable advice for mothers and daughters everywhere.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Board-certified psychiatrist Sophy has more than 20 years' experience working with children, teens, adults, and families from all socioeconomic strata and is particularly interested in the tremendously beneficial or destructive effects of mother-daughter relationships. Dividing the text into three sections, Sophy employs a strengths-based approach that starts with the "designated driver" (the mother), follows with the "chair strategy" for understanding and improving communication, and concluding with the "hot-button issues" of sex, money/values, and divorce. VERDICT Accessibly written and abundantly illustrated with stories taken from Sophy's extensive professional repertoire, this book would be useful for mothers of any age interested in improving their relationships with their daughters.—Paula McMillen, Univ. of Nevada, Las Vegas

Side by Side: The Revolutionary Mother-Daughter Program for Conflict-Free Communication 4.2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.

This book is a must for those suffering from the conflict with their daughters/mothers. It shows step-by-step how to improve communication between the conflicting parties. If you are willing to try what Dr. Sophy is recommending, you have a great chance of overcoming this conflict. The ground work that Dr. Sophy offers was thought provoking and very useful for me to understand not only what I did and do wrong with my daughter but also to analyze my relationship with my own mother. I am still in the process of working through the difficulties in my communication with both of them, but I am hoping that it will improve if I follow through with Dr. Sophy's recommendations. The book is written in a plain and common sense language, filled with examples from real life and is fun and easy to read. Highly recommend!
