Abstract

Although mental health professionals frequently work with mothers, the social construction of motherhood is rarely discussed in the counseling field. In this article, the literature on motherhood is reviewed. Intensive mothering expectations are critiqued, and the impact of these expectations on employed mothers, mothers on welfare, and stay-at-home mothers is discussed. Suggestions for mental health professionals are provided. © 2009 by the American Counseling Association. All rights reserved.
