Love, Hate and the Maternal Body
This paper takes its inspiration from an unlikely source: Maleficent, a 2014 live-action version of Disney's iconic, animated Sleeping Beauty (1959). As in the earlier film,Maleficent curses the infant Aurora to a spindle prick and deathlike sleep on her 16th birthday; and to avert this fate three good fairies spirit the princess away, to be raised in safety in the woods.  But in the 2014 film, the good fairies are a bumbling lot; they cannot even manage to feed the infant in their charge.  In an interesting turn on the problem of maternal ambivalence, Maleficent -- always hovering nearby -- finds that she cannot help but fall in love with the baby she has set out to hate.  It is her unseen hand that feeds the infant Aurora, her vigilance that protects the growing child.  Read from the perspective of recent work on the psychology of girls and women (B. Almond; R. Balsam; N. Kulish and D. Holtzman), the film illustrates the developmental importance of loving ties between mother and daughter that are strong enough -- and elastic enough -- to withstand their inevitable, mutual hatred.

Learning Objectives For Continuing Education
After attending this session, participants should be able to:
Recognize the ordinary interplay of love and hate between mother and daughter, over the lifespan of each.
Identify expressions of conflict and compromise that are unique to mothers and daughters, and that implicate their shared bodily experience.
Detect unconscious motivations specific to female bodily experience, which may be obscured by automatic reference to the male body.
