Motherhood and professional identity in the context of female clinical psychologists with children
Gaiotto, L. 2011. Motherhood and professional identity in the context of female clinical psychologists with children. PhD Thesis Canterbury Christ Church University Department of Applied Psychology
Section A situates female clinical psychologists with children within the wider socio-historical context of working-mothers. Theoretical and empirical evidence of modernist and post-modernist approaches on the development of the working-mother identity is provided. This is followed by the literature on mothers employed in the caring profession and in psychology. The review highlights the need to further explore the relationship between social, professional and personal for female clinical psychologists with children within a socio-constructionist perspective.
