The Counseling Center Offers Supportive Morning for New Moms Wednesday, March 14 PDF Print Email

alt

By Jennifer Purdon for The Counseling Center


Feb. 28, 2018:  The Counseling Center is pleased to announce the next program in its Conversation Series, “Common Challenges for Mothers of Young Children.” 

The morning, devoted to exploring the not-so-unusual experiences of adjusting to life with newborns, will be held on Wednesday, March 14, from 9:30 am to 10:30 am in the Edwards Room of The Reformed Church of Bronxville. All who are interested are invited to attend.

Dr. Adrienne Katzow, Counseling Center therapist, explained, “The perinatal phase of motherhood is defined as the period shortly before, during, and after pregnancy. While this is often an exciting time, new mothers can also experience great emotional upheaval and often have a range of difficult emotions and conflicting feelings that come with this major life transition.”

“New roles and responsibilities must be negotiated that can impact relationships,” added Dr. Pia Scaglione. “There is often a reassessment of values as new mothers try to anticipate how they can fulfill their responsibilities and still remain true to themselves while seeking meaning, purpose, and identity beyond their families.”

“The Counseling Center is committed to increasing awareness of these issues, educating women about them, and offering support,” noted Virgil Roberson, MDiv, LP, NCPsyA, executive director of the center. “Dr. Pia Scaglione and Dr. Adrienne Katzow, who will lead this program, offer expertise in issues related to fertility, pregnancy, and the postpartum period. Both have experience facilitating workshops and support groups for new moms, in addition to providing individual therapy.”

Those who are interested in attending the event should RSVP to CLOAKING
