Kavitha Lakshmanan, MSW, LCSW, will present based on the book by Hope Edelman, Motherless Daughters: The Legacy of Loss, this presentation seeks to bring greater understanding regarding some of the challenges and vulnerabilities that motherless daughters might face. We will first examine different conceptualizations of grief and associated theories. Art will be used to depict the process of working through grief. Then, using various case examples from Edelman’s book, we will focus on the common experiences, issues, and themes that emerge across the lifespan when daughters experience maternal loss due to death. We will also explore how motherless daughters can cope, integrate, and thrive in the wake of traumatic maternal loss, using the experience as a mechanism for growth, creativity, and transformation and realizing how pain can be an asset.
