If your father was absent when you were growing up — or if he was abusive, judgmental or emotionally unavailable — you almost certainly struggle in at least one of these areas: Achieving, Asserting, Sustaining Satisfying, Career Success, Yourself, Relationships.
This book takes you on a step-by-step journey to healing your father-wound, beginning with the release of unresolved longing, sadness, and anger toward your dad. As you re-process the past and re-frame it, you will begin to act as your own good father. You will experience satisfying, positive changes in your intimate relationships, creating bonds based on confidence and self-love - not out of father-hunger and neediness.
