Resource Post Week 11

In Judith Cook’s Who “Mothers” the Chronically Mentally Ill, includes the study of how treatment for the mentally ill became deinstitutionalized and is still becoming more that way. After reading Grob this week I was interested in the Feminist Therapy and this article supports that theory by suggesting that mothers should be supported with their decisions for caring for their children even if they have a mental illness. While feminism does not force women in the “motherhood” role, it does support mothers who want that lifestyle and support their capability to care for their children no matter what illness. This perspective also supports and egalitarian society and how that could be helpful to the child/patient’s illness with a balanced environment. The article can be located at the following link:
