Workshop So05: Sunday, Oct. 23, 2016, 11:00 am – 01:00 pm
Not all mothers love their children. If a child has experienced openly, covertly, directly or subtly, rejection, hatred, or even attacks of destruction, the first relationship in life is based on, not to love, but to fear. The child experiences itself alone and powerless and is additionally confused by an environment which maintains the idealized image of an "always loving mother."
Children are dependent; destructive feelings and violence of the mother can neither be understood nor placed, the child cannot change anything, nor leave. The desire for love, closeness and contact with the mother is contrary to the fear of the mother, the need for protection. Existential threat as a "normal state" in childhood leads to the development of severe to extreme survival strategies, affecting all relationships, including the upbringing of their own children and leads to physical and mental stress limits, over the years.
In the workshop, we deal with aspects of affected persons and the impact on the "I", the identity and own will.
