Too Close for Comfort: The Mother-Daughter Bond in the 21st Century - Details:

At no time in recent history have mothers and their young-adult daughters had so much in common--education, workplace experience, politics, fitness, fashion, music. Sometimes they seem more like best friends than members of two different generations, much less parent and child. Remarkably, there's still no road map to help mothers and adult daughters negotiate their complex relationships that combine so many eternal elements of the old dynamics of this bond with social realities unlike any that have ever existed before. In this workshop, we'll explore the sociological forces that have had such a striking impact on mother-daughter relationships, discuss the pitfalls of mothers and daughters becoming best friends, and provide tools for helping them develop mutually supportive relationships with realistic boundaries.
