In strengthening the importance of adapting to the ‘good mother’ script, a crucial role was played by psychoanalysis. As it will be shown, psychology has been instrumental in constructing the ways in which motherhood is seen, and in maintaining mothers in their current social position. Moreover, psychoanalysis is a useful tool which can be used to show how we acquire our heritage of the ideas and laws of human society within the unconscious mind. One of the most known and debated psychoanalytic approaches to the mother-child relationship is the one used by Sigmund Freud in his analysis of the so-called Oedipus complex. In his discussion, Freud stresses how the part played by the mother in the first stage of development of her offspring has to be followed by the children’s extradition from the maternal clutches through the submission to the liberating father law.

Sigmund Freud was an Austrian psychodynamic theorist. Freud studied the unconscious mind and believed that how humans behave, their emotions and feelings all originate from the unconscious mind. He believed that the personality consisted of three parts: the id, ego and superego. • The id is the impulsive part of the personality which makes “I want” demands (Thompson & Meggit, 2004) • As we grow the ego develops which operates according to the reality principle, trying to balance the demands of the unconscious with what is possible (Thompson & Meggit, 2004) • The superego emerges between the ages of 4 to 6. It relies on the morality principle acting as a censor and conscience by telling what is right and wrong.

Cognitive Behavioral Theory (CBT) is a form of psychological treatment that helps different types of behavioral problems such depression, eating disorders, and severe mental illness. The Cognitive Behavioral Theory was pioneered by Aron Beck. Although he spent most of his career studying psychoanalysis, in the 1960s his research focused on distorted thoughts that led to problematic behaviors (“Beck”, 2017). He developed the Cognitive Behavioral Theory trying to help his depressed clients while working as a psychiatrist at the University of Pennsylvania. The Cognitive Behavioral Theory (CBT) approach consists on monitoring negative automatic thoughts (cognitive), recognizing the connection between cognition and behavior, examine the evidence for and against the distorted thoughts, and learn to identify and alter the dysfunctional beliefs (Craske, 2010).
