The Caretaker Complex is a complex of identity which is formed early in childhood when a parent, primarily the mother, expects the child to take care of her. As an adult, such a child continues to serve, take care of, and accommodate other people, often at her own expense. The nature of caretakers’ original wound suggests that a crucial task for them is to allow themselves to be taken care of and be able to own and express their needs and wants.
