Mothers Who Can’t Love: Breaking the Cycle of Toxic Parenting for Adult Daughters

  • The MTG Space 4039 Legacy Parkway Lansing, MI 48911 United States (map)

Course Description:

This interactive workshop will begin with a thought-provoking literature review and discussion on the topics of mothers who have toxic tendencies and the impact of being raised in this environment. Specifically, you will examine the impact of early maternal neglect and abuse on the developmental outcomes of young daughters. You will then examine the experiences of these daughters once they reach adulthood and are charged with the task of mothering their own infants and toddlers. Videotaped interviews of these daughters will be presented throughout this workshop and will be used to illustrate (in the words of the daughters) the challenges they face in the aftermath of their challenging relationships with their own mothers. Evidenced-based clinical practices used to work with young mothers and their children will also be explored.
