1 Way To Assess Your Relationship With Your Mother

Love, Self

Growing older, gtrowing stronger. How does your relationship grow?

In our book, Mother/Daughter Duets, we examine a range of concerns in the relationships between mature daughters and their mothers growing old. We ourselves are such a mother/daughter team. We use our own relationship, along with many others who have contributed their own experiences to our book to shine a spotlight on the dynamics of the adult mother/daughter interactions, highlighting the changes that occur during maturation.

With our book for inspiration, and our backgrounds as therapists and social workers, we have also developed a workshop that we conduct onsite for mothers and daughters, alone or together. Our workshop is fun and interactive, involving participants in discussions, role-play, and more. We conduct these workshops all over the country (and abroad), often at college campuses, community centers and senior centers.
