Absent Fathers & The Forgiveness Model

Forgiveness belongs within the psychoanalytic relationship.

Daddy issues?

If you felt hurt, abandoned and a sense that you're missing a positive paternal role model, this workshop maybe for you.
Let's look at your life transcripts, narritives and stories, of how dad helps shape the psyche.

Meaningful paternal contact is critical for how we develop viewes about ourselves, self management, and how we we deal with trauma.

Forgiveness can be described as follows; " A psychological work in continuation of the labour of mourning, with the power to safe guard the gains of a successful mourning process. It is minimally defensive, developmentally progressive and unconsciously motivated (Siassi, 2007)

Statistics show that fatherless children are more likely to be raised in poverty, drop out of school, develop addiction problems, be incarcerated, commit suicide, and show violent behaviour. Much of the discourse demonstrate a public heath issues and epidemic..
