Absent-Father Syndrome: Overcoming the Trauma of a Fatherless Childhood
by Dr. Morarji Peesay
Absent-father syndrome can cause great fear and anxiety, and can become a generational issue. It can affect everything in our lives, and especially our intimate relationships. The key to breaking the cycle of hurt, misunderstanding, and loss is recognizing what belongs in the present—and what belongs in the past.
When we start the healing journey, we open ourselves to making peace with our wounded past. This journey can deepen our present relationships and create lasting, real love with our partners. What wounded us in the past sometimes gives us the opportunity to grow in the future. Absent-Father Syndrome explores this trauma and the journey to healing.
