Mother Hunger Helping Our Clients Heal Their First Broken Heart
Facilitated by Kelly McDaniel, LPC, NCC, CSAT
Friday, November 6, 2020- 8:00 am- 12:00 pm PST
*4 Supervisor Credits Available *

In this didactic webinar, Kelly McDaniel will speak on her concept of Mother Hunger. With a focus on treatment, the webinar includes a deep exploration of the three essential elements of mothering: nurture, protection, and guidance. When one or more is missing during formative years between mother and child, there are life-long physical and psychological consequences. While the discussion will highlight women, principles of Mother Hunger strike a universal chord for anyone affected by this early attachment wound.

Objectives:
After this presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Name Mother Hunger and understand what creates this attachment injury that damages future bonding efforts, impacting how we feel about ourselves and those we love. Given that 50% of the adult population is somewhere on the spectrum of insecure attachment, Mother Hunger is a common experience for many adults who seek treatment for depression, anxiety, addiction, and complex post-traumatic stress.
  2.  Identify best treatment for Mother Hunger, specifically the missing maternal elements of nurturing, protecting, and guiding. Know what creates third degree mother hunger, what it is, how it mimics personality disorders, and how best to treat it.
  3. Embrace the role of disenfranchised grief and ambiguous loss in the treatment of Mother Hunger and why it’s so important to have compassion for ourselves as healers.

 About Kelly McDaniel

In her Nashville, TN practice, Kelly McDaniel, LPC, NCC, CSAT, author and psychotherapist, offers Individual Intensives for adults facing heartbreak. Kelly works carefully and confidentially with clients as they navigate the tender, primitive wound that comes from a broken heart. Masking as rage, numbness, fear/or grief, the loneliness of a broken heart is sometimes difficult to name and very hard to live with.

Kelly is writing her new book entitled Mother HungerTM Healing Your First Broken Heart. Expanding her concept of Mother HungerTM (MH) from book Ready to Heal (McDaniel, 2008), she has developed a treatment process to remedy the complex betrayal trauma that constitutes the first heartbreak in a child’s development, setting the stage for a lonely life.

Kelly is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC). Her background includes a Master’s Degree in English Literature from Georgetown University in Washington, DC and a Master’s Degree in Counseling from St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, TX.

In graduate school, Kelly minored in Women’s Studies, and formulated her practice around the principles of Relational and Cultural Theory. Additional training includes Sue Johnson’s ‘Emotionally Focused Therapy’, Pia Mellody’s ‘PIT model’, and EMDR, ‘Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprossessing’.

In 2008, Gentle Path Press published McDaniel’s first book Ready to Heal written for women healing from addictive love and sex. Ready to Heal outlines the inescapable impasse that occurs for women who need love but are pathologized for their desire. The book emerged from a recognition that women needed gender-specific information about addictive relationships, and so the concept of Mother HungerTM (MH) was introduced.

In 2012, Kelly’s second edition of Ready to Heal includes an expanded chapter on “Mother HungerTM” a concept that has assisted both clinicians and clients in naming the origin of addictive relationships. At conferences and workshops, Kelly speaks and teaches about the cultural legacy that creates Mother HungerTM, Addiction and Heartbreak.
