Becoming a "Good-Enough" Mother: From Pregnancy to Birth to Healthy Attachment

ID: 5278

This workshop is about the journey of motherhood, particularly the key areas of pregnancy, postpartum issues, and attachment. Participants will gain a thorough understanding of what mental health issues can surface for a woman during and after pregnancy. Participants will explore the projections and fantasies that can arise for women during pregnancy, as well as the transference issues that can surface if the therapist herself is pregnant. The symptoms and treatment of postpartum mood disorders will be discussed at length. Finally, D. W. Winnicott's concept of the "good-enough" mother will be explored in its connection to a healthy attachment from mother to baby. Case examples and interventions will be explored, and extensive resources, reading lists, and current research articles will be provided. The workshop will be a combination of lecture and group process. Participants are free to bring case examples.
