Tuesday August 26th, 2014, 4pm PT, 7pm ET: Ghost Mothers and Narcissistic Mothers with Kaleah and Kathryn Rudlin
Kaleah and Kathryn Rudlin talk about unavailable Mothers and how those who grow up without emotional nurturing hunger for that nurturing all their lives until they can take that inner healing journey to find and embrace the Mother within.
The book Ghost Mothers was inspired by the many years Kathryn spent trying to create a positive relationship with her illusive mother. When years of effort led nowhere, she came to see that her mother wasn’t capable of maternal nurturing, and that she was a ghost-daughter, haunted by painful feelings and unsure how to move forward. Her healing journey reinforced the many strengths developed in growing up this way, and she now shares her personal and professional experience to help others thrive.
Kathryn Rudlin is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in California with over 30 years experience working in a variety of therapeutic settings. She has worked at every level of therapeutic treatment to include foster care, alternative schools, residential treatment, wilderness therapy, and psychiatric hospitalization. She is a therapist in private practice in San Diego, specializing in counseling and education for ghost-mothered women, and others wanting to heal from a narcissistic relationship – in addition to offering workshops incorporating mind-body techniques to move forward from a painful past.
