About the Training

“I love my mother, but…”
“I am so impatient with my mother — what’s wrong with me?”
“Stupid things about my mother make me so angry — is she impossible or is it me?”

How many times have you heard these words from a client? Have these words ever echoed your feelings?

Who else is loved so deeply and, conversely, blamed so intensely as one’s mother? The mother-daughter relationship is often a crucial focus in the treatment of eating disorders. As mental health professionals, we are trained to create treatment plans reflecting theoretical perspectives, yet our personal experiences may cloud our vision. Who you are as a person may be more important than what you think or what you think you think!

The mother stories we carry can consciously or unconsciously empower or derail us, personally as well as professionally. This 1 CE training offers participants an opportunity to explore, expand and rewrite their mother-stories.
