Summary: In this exciting new workshop we will explore the often complex relationship dynamics between mothers and daughters, and consider how we might work with these dynamics in the consulting room.

*Mothers and Daughters: A complex couple rooted in love and pain*

Event Description:

Beginning with Winnicott’s statement that “there is no such thing as a baby”, we will look at how we might explore the impact of the maternal on a daughter and the issues around the identification that each has to one another. We will consider potential projections, hopes, desires, fears, and over-identifications.

We will also spend some time looking at the mother-daughter relationship through the lens of attachment theory and consider the impact on a daughter’s development when she has been raised with an avoidant mother, a preoccupied mother, a secure mother, a traumatised mother. The experience of the anorexic daughter, the carer, the lesbian daughter etc, will also be considered.

Throughout the workshop we will be exploring feminism and the impact of gender on the relationship between mother and daughter too.

This workshop is suitable for experienced therapists as well as those new to the profession and those in-training. Please be aware that an in-depth examination of the four main attachment styles will not be offered as part of this workshop, but a handout will be sent to all participants ahead of the workshop that provides a general introduction.

There will be ample opportunity for questions and discussions during this event.
