Father Hunger and Father Wounds
Professional Development Workshop
Friday June 9th 2017
8:30-9 Check In
Maine Township Town Hall
1700 Ballard Road, Park Ridge
Fatherlessness and being harmed by one’s father are leading public health crises of the 21st Century. The absence of fathers in daughters’ lives increases premature entry into adulthood, the risk of toxic relationships, addictive relationship styles, addiction, sexual abuse, and teen pregnancy. The absence of fathers in sons’ lives increases the risk of street gangs and other destructive peer group affiliations, toxic masculinity, the absence of rituals to define manhood, male depression, violence, and incarceration. Father wounds occur when the child was injured by his or her father—emotionally, verbally, physically, sexually, etc. This workshop will describe the impact of father hunger and father wounds throughout the life span—from childhood to adulthood. In this workshop you will learn strategies to clinically address the impact of father hunger and father wounds across the lifespan, from birth to the elder years.
