Morning Program: WHICH MOTHER’S MILK? 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM
The Wet Nurse: Revered and Reviled
Barbara Zucker, Sculptor and Prof. Emerita, University of Vermont: Presenter
Often called the second oldest profession, the wet nurse was alternately respected and embraced, or scorned and mistrusted. Long into the twentieth century, the wet nurse was still considered essential to the survival of infants and was prevalent throughout societies worldwide. Together with images of the wet nurse, sculptures, drawings, photographs and illustrations that are relevant to the subject, Professor Zucker will present and explore the vital roles, functions, history and opinions about the profession.
Valerie Angel, LCSW: Q & A Moderator - Audience Discussion Leader
Valerie Angel will guide audience participation in dialogues with Prof. Zucker, and with each other. We will explore the varieties and functions of the modern day “wet nurses” in contemporary America, who share their “milk”, nourishment of the life, with other people’s children: They might include various substitutes for “parental” roles beyond infancy such as child care workers, adoptive parents, step-parents, teachers and mentors, and therapists.
Afternoon Program: SHIFTING SHAPES OF FAMILIES
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
1:00 PM - 2:45 PM -- Panel Presentation:
Margaret Black Mitchell, LCSW: Panel Leader & Discussant
Contemporary American families have changed their shapes from ‘traditional nuclear family’ to many different forms of families in the last seventy years. Divorces increased in number and step-families are common and prevalent. The recent statistics report that single parent households now outnumber the ‘traditional’ two parent family. In addition, same sex households have gained increasing acceptance. With women’s advances in workplaces, the number of households that incorporate stay-at-home fathers and child care workers also significantly increased. While wet-nurses, nannies, grandparents, and adoptive and step families historically supplemented the child rearing responsibilities, today’s shifting shapes of families present a number of issues and challenges arising from these changes. The afternoon panel presentation and discussions will examine the implications of these socio-cultural changes from the theoretical and clinical perspectives.
