Mothers and Daughters: A Discussion of Theory and Research
Preview not available

Abstract

Although the mother-daughter relationship has received increasing attention, both in concept and in empirical research, there has never been a published summary of the theories and research relevant to this exclusively feminine relationship. This article describes the "state of the art" relative to the mother-daughter dyad, with special emphasis on those works that focus on theory development and/or utilize mother-daughter samples. The article concludes with a brief discussion on the extent to which research supports contemporary mother-daughter theories.
