“Many mothers and daughters are as close as any two people can be, but closeness always carries with it the need to consider how your actions will affect the other person…”
– Deborah Tannen, from her book
“You’re Wearing THAT?”
Please join us and bring a friend to a lively presentation and panel discussion featuring three mother/adult daughter pairs. Facilitated by Princeton psychologist and family therapist, Dr. Sharon Rose Powell, we will explore the joys and challenges, bonds and missteps, of mother/daughter relationships. Dr. Powell will help us examine the ways we fall into common traps that can impede the important connections we seek as mothers and daughters. Several practical self-assessment tools will also be provided.
Although it is not an attendance pre-requisite, we invite participants to read Deborah Tannen’s book, “You’re Wearing THAT?” before we meet. Published in 2006, it’s every bit as relevant today.
We also encourage you to participate in our Potluck gathering tradition by bringing a Potluck dish or beverage to share with others. Please register by clicking the link below. This popular topic is likely to draw a large group of women of all ages.
LOCATION: Our event will be held at the Princeton YWCA Bramwell House, which is located directly behind the main building of the YWCA at 59 Paul Robeson Place. There is ample parking especially on Sundays. You are welcome to bring a friend but please send us her full name through our email address (firstname.lastname@example.org).
