Mothering and Psychoanalysis

 Nancy Chodorow and Petra Bueskens_Maynooth University_June2015

Dr Petra Bueskens, editor of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Journal of Australia and lecturer at the Australian College of Applied Psychology recently attended the Motherhood and Cultures conference at Maynooth University in Dublin, Ireland. The keynote speakers were Professor Nancy Chodorow and Professor Andrea O’Reilly – both leaders in the field of motherhood studies. Sessions focused on motherhood in contemporary art, literature, media and culture, including in psychology and psychotherapy research and practice. A short article in July 2015 PACFA eNews covered my recent attendance at this conference. You can read the piece on page 20 or read the excerpt here:
