Molly Millwood, associate professor of psychology and a licensed psychologist (on leave for the 2018-2019 academic year) has a forthcoming book, To Have and To Hold: Motherhood, Marriage, and the Modern Dilemma. It will be released on March 26, 2019 by HarperCollins. Using a blend of personal narrative, scientific research, and stories from her clinical practice, Millwood examines the inextricable link between women’s well-being as new mothers and the well-being of their relationships, according to a description by the publisher. This is from a Publishers Weekly review: “A compassionate book that affirms that emotional difficulties for new mothers are not anomalous but universal and can extend well past the immediate postpartum period, with profound effects on their relationships with their spouses.”

Molly Millwood, associate professor of psychology, is also an accomplished singer-songwriter who earned praise from Seven Days reviewer Amelia Devoid in December for a debut album release. Devoid wrote, “With expertise in trauma and PTSD, as well as marriage and relationships, she is a scholar of human sensitivity. This insight into deep human experience gives her powerful songwriting ability. On her debut album, Home, Millwood crafts folk and country tunes with intense honesty and brave emotional vulnerability. She's going to heal you with her low-key folk songs.
