Phillip Larkin's famous poem about parents captures well the effect parents have on our lives. So many of us live with the emotional ghosts from the damage they caused, some unintentional, some very intentional. This compassionate and insightful book by former psychotherapist, Virtue, and clinical social worker, Karpenko, focuses on the father-child relationship. By examining the three types of paternal abuse it empowers you to counsel that wounded inner child. A healing journey that many are scared to embark upon, but one that aims to ultimately free you so you can move forward and finally enjoy your life.
