Understanding the Mother-Daughter Relationship
Poetry Therapy Workshop
11 May 2019

“The mother-daughter relationship is an essential, powerful force in every woman’s life. When a woman understands more about her relationship with her mother and her daughter(s), she has the opportunity to develop a stronger sense of herself as an individual and a woman.”– Geri Giebel Chavis.


  • Do you want to examine the impact of your mother’s influence and expectations?
  • Do you want to explore how this bond has affected you?
  • Do you want a stronger sense of self?

If you have answered ‘yes’ to any of the questions, and you want to embark on a journey of self-discovery, this workshop is for you.


Poetry therapy offers a unique opportunity for healing, growth and understanding.

Let’s explore together and develop a stronger sense of yourself. Using poetry, conversation and self-reflective writing, we will learn how to embrace and navigate the powerful mother-daughter dynamic.

Who is this workshop for?
This experiential workshop is for anyone who wants to examine the relationship they have or had with their mother. The workshop is not focussed on parenting.

It is also beneficial for those who enjoy journaling, writing for personal or professional development, or who are interested in using therapeutic writing with groups.

No prior knowledge of poetry or expressive writing is required, just a willingness to share, reflect and experiment with words in a supportive environment.
