Mother Daughter Dynamics in the Chronically Disorganized Environment

The mother/daughter relationship is so primal, intense and complex, that it can drive a person to his/her line of work, dictate how he/she manages their home environment, and influence the types of relationships they form.

In this workshop, Ilana will present her model that she developed for her newly released book, What’s Mom Still Got to Do With it? and explore areas that significantly impact people’s lives.

Even though the family influence is deep and unconscious, the solution does not have to be. Organizers can use this framework to help instill hope and confidence for success by using strengths-­based tools to reinforce healthy/positive messages and challenge difficult family stories and past experiences.
