Counseling the High Need Mother

Time-frame: 75-90
CERP: yes

We all have those mothers who just seem to get the best of us, and we aren’t always sure why or what to do about it. This session discusses who the high need mother is, including situational issues and the impact of personality dysfunctions on the helping relationship. Appropriate boundary setting and proactive strategies are discussed to help cope more successfully with these challenges.

This session was originally co-developed in conjunction with my colleague Nancy Williams, IBCLC, MFT. It usually generates a lot of discussion in the audience; more time would allow for more discussion.
