Local Author Visit: Dr. Molly Millwood

Please join us for a talk and book-signing event with local author and clinical psychologist Molly Millwood. Dr. Millwood, a mother herself, knows firsthand the confusion, guilt, and incompatible feelings so many mothers experience as they lose touch with their own identities and their sense of balance and well-being in the wake of giving birth. In To Have and To Hold: Motherhood, Marriage, and the Modern Dilemma, Millwood explores the complexities of early motherhood, including its very real impact on marriage, with candor, practical advice, and an eye toward empowering women to reclaim emotional, psychological, and relationship stability. 

Dr. Molly Millwood holds a Ph.D. in clinical psychology with advanced specialized training in marital therapy and intimate relationships. After completing a post-doctoral fellowship at Stanford, Dr. Millwood joined the faculty of Saint Michael's College in Vermont where she is now a tenured professor and clinical supervisor. She is also a licensed psychologist in private practice where she is particularly known for her work with couples and with women navigating the transition to parenthood. She lives in Vermont with her husband and two children.

Free and open to the public.  Childcare provided.  Please call 482-2878 or email jill@carpentercarse.org to register for childcare.

American Odyssey - from South Starksboro to São Paulo - from home para casa

 

Some people are known for being eager to leave, wanting to see the world and tasting cultures and flavors never before experienced. Others are content with developing the homestead, working the land and appreciating the juicy fruits that routine can bring to our lives. What happens when two souls, each bearing one of these personalities, come together with love and a willingness to make life happen together? Sixth generation Vermonter Nathan Shepard and fourth generation Japanese-Brazilian Christiane Kokubo will share a glimpse into how they traveled 30,000 miles in a small car that brought their bodies, minds and spirits from a cabin in Addison County to the largest city in the Southern Hemisphere.
