Maternal hostility: Insights from evolution and anthropology with Daniela Sieff, PhD

November 2022

Date TBA

Online

Image: "Colours of Your Mood" by Agsandrew

We believe that mothers instinctively love and protect all their children. This belief makes it difficult to understand why a mother might feel hostility towards her child, or, even worse, act out her hostility in a way that harms her child. Indeed, we see hostile mothers as unnatural, and perhaps mentally ill. But is this the most helpful way to understand faltering mothers, or is there a better approach?

 

In this webinar, I’ll argue that a more insightful understanding is offered by modern evolution and anthropology, and share the relevant research. I’ll also argue that this understanding can contribute to clinical work with faltering mothers, and also to programs focused on preventing mothers from treating their children in a hostile manner.

 

THE GOALS OF THIS WEBINAR ARE TO FOSTER GREATER CONSCIOUSNESS OF:

• Build an evolutionary and anthropological valid understanding of motherhood.

• Show how that understanding has the potential to contribute to clinical work with faltering mothers, and also to programs focused on preventing mothers from treating their children in a hostile manner.

• Encourage faltering mothers develop a more compassionate and less shame-full understanding of their hostility, and so be able to face it and tackle it more openly.

• Help people who have grown up with hostile mothers understand a little more about what happened to them.

 

BOOKING: • Details still to be finalized, so if you are interested then join Daniela's mailing list and you’ll be sent details of how to book (and get priority booking and discounted price) as soon as booking is available.

The Archetypal Death Parent and Toxic Shame:
A traumatising partnership with Daniela Sieff, PhD

Date and time to be confirmed, but planned for December 2022

Online via Zoom

Beth Conklin (Igram) - Hold you - edited.jpg

Image: "Hold You" by Beth Conklin

 Jungian philosophy views archetypes as images that derive from the unconscious, and symbolise a universal aspect of human experience. The archetypal Death Parent symbolises harm suffered at the hands of a person or institution who we expect to nurture and protect us. The Death Parent’s energy is multifaceted. This webinar explores the Death Parent as toxic shame. Toxic shame is an embodied conviction that we are intrinsically and fundamentally flawed. When the Death Parent manifests as toxic shame, it is as if we are caught in Medusa’s gaze: we become paralyzed, frozen, and turned to stone. When toxic shame is internalised, we turn Medusa’s gaze in on ourselves and out on to others. Vicious, self-perpetuating spirals ensue. This webinar illuminates these spirals.

 

THE GOALS OF THIS WEBINAR ARE TO FOSTER GREATER CONSCIOUSNESS OF:

• The archetypal Death Parent • How the archetypal Death Parent can be manifest as toxic shame.

• Why internalised toxic shame often goes unrecognised.

• How unrecognised toxic shame distorts how we see ourselves and others.

• How unrecognised toxic shame drives us to behave in ways that traumatise both ourselves and others.

• How parents with unrecognised toxic shame, unwittingly create toxic shame in their children.

• How unrecognised toxic shame unwittingly creates more toxic shame.

BOOKING: • Details still to be finalised, so if you are interested then join my mailing list and you’ll be sent details of how to book (and get priority booking and discounted price) as soon as booking is available.
