Workshop Fr12: Friday, Oct. 21, 2016, 05:30 – 07:30 pm

Who am I as a mother and how does my relationship with my children change as my healthy self-strengthens?

This workshop will focus on what it means to be a mother, in the context of understanding trauma. We will examine the central role of a mother within the family, drawing on our experiences from conception onwards, and the challenge of appropriately meeting the developmental needs of young children.

Topics for discussion:

  • The ways in which children exhibit symptoms of MGPT
  • Developing the language of trauma within the family
  • Personal examples of changes in the parent/child relationship, as a result of working with our trauma
  • How children can act as indicators of the issues their parents need to address
  • Perpetrator-victim dynamics between siblings
  • The positive impact of truth on children (about their birth, traumatic events in their lives etc.)
  • The effect on our children when we, as parents, are in our healthy, survival or trauma selves
  • Developing healthy symbiosis within the family and supporting our children’s healthy autonomy
